Crooks have been stealing steering wheels from cars across Kent, sparking a police warning for drivers to be vigilant.

Steering wheels have been stolen Longfield, Sevenoaks and Maidstone by a pair of hooded bandits since November.

Police said the thefts, which also include dashboard computers being stolen, are from BMW, Mercedes and Audi cars.

Detective Constable Tony Hatcher said: "We are urging motorists to remain vigilant and to carry out some simple steps which may reduce their chances of being a victim of crime. These include using a steering lock or ensuring that if you have a garage that the vehicle is locked inside.

"Thieves are sometimes also able to fool security systems for keyless vehicles. To prevent this we would recommend owners check if their keyless entry fobs can be turned off overnight and to also store them away from any household entry points.

"Drivers can also store their fobs in special bags, which can be bought from retailers to prevent any unwanted communication between the vehicle and its keys. If you are unsure contact your vehicle manufacturer or local dealer for advice."

Police have now released images of two men they would like to speak to.
