Drivers should consider getting anti-tamper screws fitted, say police

Police in the south-east of the city said plates had been stolen from cars in Rainbow Crescent, Hackenthorpe, and Glenholme Way, Stradbroke, earlier this week.

Officers advised people to consider having anti-tamper screws fitted to secure their number plates, but said this should only be done by qualified fitters.

Sheffield South East Neighbourhood Policing Team also said people should think about using timer lights if they are out during the evening, to deter burglars.

The team issued this advice following attempted break-ins in Richmond and Arbourthorne this week.
