south east ‘hotspot’ for Clas­siC Car Crime

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

Af­ter a spate of thefts in the Mid­lands, thieves are now con­cen­trat­ing on the south east ac­cord­ing to ex­perts. A greater den­sity of clas­sics and easy ac­cess to ports are the main rea­sons.

In Jan­uary this year, five Ford Corti­nas were taken from Kent and South Lon­don. The clas­sics were stolen be­tween 6 De­cem­ber 2015 to 9 Jan­uary 2016. Three of the cars, two MkIIIs and a MkV, were taken from roughly the same area in Kent.

More re­cently, there was a break-in at a yard in Grays, Es­sex where a 1982 one-owner-from-new Cortina Cru­sader, a four door MkIII and a two door MkIII were stolen in late Fe­bru­ary or early March 2016.
