Woman prevents car theft

A WOMAN who caught two men stealing cars from her driveway managed to stop one of them driving off in a Land Rover.

The woman was at her High Lane West home at about 11.30am on Friday morning when she looked out of the window and saw a man about to drive off in her grey Mini.

She ran outside and saw another man about to drive off in a Land Rover.

She quickly grabbed the keys from the ignition and the man got out and jumped in the Mini and the pair drove off.

She described one of the offenders as being 5ft 10ins wearing glasses and a blue top.

The other was 5ft 11ins wearing a cream fleece. Both are described as white and in their 20s.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to call them on their new non-emergency number, 101.
