POLICE and AA officials will be handing out special kits aimed at making it more difficult for thieves to steal number plates from vehicles.

Criminals steal plates to help conceal the true identity of vehicles used in crimes.

To make life harder for thieves, officers and AA staff will be offering anti-theft kits for £1 at the Tesco store on Infirmary Road, Sheffield, on Thursday, December 13, between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Officers will be at Morrisons on Penistone Road, the same day between 10am and 3.30pm, handing out purse security bells in a bid to deter pickpockets.
