Surrey Police warn drivers over spate of fuel thefts

Police have warned drivers to secure their fuel caps following a spate of thefts in a part of Surrey.

Surrey Police said there have been three reports of fuel theft in Elmbridge over the past week, following a spate of similar crimes in December.

Officers have warned the thefts may continue after the culprits discovered an "easy source of income".

Drivers have been advised to fit lockable fuel caps and anti-siphon devices.
