A force spokesman said: “There has recently been a spate of vehicle crime in the Collingham area recently.

“Wetherby Neighbourhood Policing Team are aware and are conducting reassurance patrols in the area.

“Please ensure when you leave your vehicle for a prolonged period of time that the door is locked and alarm on.
