London top hot spot for vehicle thieves

Date: 09 February 2017

According to the latest figures from TRACKER, the leading stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) expert, London tops the list of regions where cars are most stolen and recovered. In 2016, TRACKER saw nearly £6 million worth of vehicles were stolen and returned to their owners, in the Capital alone. To highlight the issue and offer car owners a solution to protecting their vehicles, the TRACKER team of experts will be on hand to give one-to-one advice for shoppers visiting Westfield Shopping Centre
Throughout Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th February, the TRACKER team will also be unveiling its new app, designed to help motorist keep tabs on their vehicle.  
Illustrating TRACKER’s powerful partnership with police forces across the UK, the Metropolitan Police car will be on display on the stand, and used to demonstrate how the police and TRACKER work together to thwart thieves.
Andy Barrs, Head of Police Liaison at TRACKER, comments, “Last year we saw a year-on-year increase of over 10% in the total volume of stolen and recovered cars. The prestige 4x4, BMW X5 was the most stolen and recovered vehicle of 2016, closely followed by the Range Rover Sport. However, with Metropolitan Police reporting that vehicle thefts have risen for the first time in 20 years, it highlights how all vehicle owners need to take stock of their car security.”
“We’re looking forward to talking to Westfield shoppers and demonstrating the TRACKER app, which puts the power of our unique technology in the palm of their hand. TRACKER has been reuniting car lovers with their vehicles for over 20 years and we’ll be in Westfield to show shoppers just how we can help them close the net on car thieves.”
