Police are appealing for information after thefts from Minis in Dale in Letchworth, Chiltern Road in Baldock and Keats Way in Hitchin on January 4 or January 5.

There have been a further 19 incidents in which wing mirrors or casings have been stolen in Baldock, Hitchin, Letchworth, Knebworth and Stevenage since mid-September – police are linking the incidents.

North Herts Insp Duncan Sales said: “These thefts are continuing to cause the owners unnecessary expense in replacing the stolen or damaged mirrors and we are keen to catch the person, or people, responsible as soon as possible.
