VEHICLE owners are being warned about thieves stealing catalytic converters.

North Wales Police's community safety team said 4x4s and SUVs were most at risk due to having a high ground clearance.

The team advised owners to park vehicles next to a fence, wall or kerb to make access more difficult. The exhaust should be closest to the fence, wall or kerb.

Or, ideally, keep the vehicle in a locked garage when possible.
