A spokesman for neighbourhood watch group Kenilworth Watch said: "We need to help ourselves and deter these crimes as much as possible.

"While Kenilworth Watch will continue to press police for a greater presence equally we must emphasise that there are a number of things that householders can do to deter criminals and save themselves from becoming the next victim."

The group has suggested motorists should consider getting a steering wheel lock for their vehicles, leaving valuables out of sight and having a burglar alarm.

Anyone with any information about the crimes should call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting the relevant incident number.
