Three cars stolen from Swanley within one night

Burglars targeting homes for car keys stole three vehicles from the same town in Kent in the space of one night.

In the early hours of Thursday, four homes were burgled in Swanley and three cars, including a BMW which was later found burnt out, were driven away.

Police have warned residents not to leave keys near windows or on tables.

The thefts followed an opportunist theft in Maidstone on Monday when a man dropped his keys, and discovered the next morning his car had been taken.
