VAN owners are being warned to be especially vigilant after the spare wheels of two Volkswagen Caddy vans were stolen in the last week.

A Darlington Police spokesman said: “Please remember to keep your vehicles secure, park them in a garage when possible and if not in a well-lit area.

“Also, you could consider putting your spare wheel inside your van rather than it being outside.”
