Five youths have been arrested in connection with thefts from vehicles in the Isle of Man.

Police said there had been a surge of thefts involving "unattended and insecure" cars in the north and south of the island since September.

The young men, aged between 16 and 19, were arrested on Wednesday and have been released on bail.

Sgt Darren Gorry said police were "working to reunite owners with their recovered property".
