Car thefts up five per cent


New data has found that a car was stolen in Britain every eight minutes and 12 seconds last year.

A total of 64,087 cars were reported stolen to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency in 2023, up from 61,106 the previous year, representing a five per cent increase.

Meanwhile the data also revealed that keyless car theft is now the most common tactic used by organised criminals.

The Ford Fiesta was reported stolen more often than any other model (5,976), more than twice that of the second most stolen car, the Ford Focus (2,120). The VW Golf (2,038), Mercedes-Benz C-Class (1,786) and Range Rover Sport (1,631) also made the top five list.
