Van drivers in Guildford targeted by thieves

Van drivers have been warned to carry out regular safety checks on their vehicles following a rise in catalytic converter thefts.

Surrey Police issued the warning after nine commercial vehicles were targeted in Guildford in a week.

Pc Steve Cake said vans were targeted because they are easier to get underneath.

He said: "It only takes a few minutes for a thief to crawl under a vehicle and remove the converter."
