It can take as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from your car.

The best way to protect your belongings is to lock your car whenever you leave it.

Police say other things you can do include:

* Removing everything from the car; don’t even leave a jacket where it can be seen.

* Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave.

* Not storing things in the boot; take them with you.

* Storing car ownership information in your home, not your car.

* Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the ignition.

* Taking removable stereos and sat nav equipment with you.

In addition, using secure (theft resistant) number plates can make your plates less attractive to thieves.
