Say no to number plate thieves

DRIVERS can say no to number plate thieves by getting special non-tamper screws fitted thanks to a new neighbourhood watch scheme.

Members of Doncaster West Neighbourhood Watch have teamed up with JA’s Autos in Denaby Main to offer people the chance to get them installed on their cars free of charge.

The scheme will launch on Tuesday, March 1, and has been made possible thanks to funding from South Yorkshire’s police and crime commissioner (PCC), Dr Alan Billings.

Eileen Cooper, chairperson of the Doncaster West Neighbourhood Watch, said: “There has been a rise in the number of thefts since the government got rid of tax discs.

“We have got 50 sets of the specialist non-tamper screws thanks to the PCC funding and a grant from South Yorkshire Neighbourhood Watch Association.

“We’re very grateful of the help from the staff at JA’s Autos.”

Mrs Cooper said the specialist screws can only be fitted at a garage.

For more information or if you would like to get some of the screws fitted on your car call Mrs Cooper on 01709 322571.
