Keep tools safe, workmen told

Have your say

Police are appealing for information - and reminding van drivers and tradespeople to keep vehicles secure - after tools were stolen in Eckington.

The items were taken from the back of a Vauxhall Astra van, parked on Fanshawe Drive, sometime between January 1 and 3.

Thieves also tried to steal an industrial cleaner from a Hyundai H100, parked on Fir Place at Killamarsh, overnight between January 2 and 3.

Officers are reminding people to remove any items from vehicles and to make sure they are left secure.

Tradespeople are also encouraged to mark valuables with a forensic security marking kit to help police identify stolen property and return it.
