Drivers are urged to be vigilant following a spate of fuel thefts in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales.

Between 8pm on April 22 and 9.50am the following day, a thief made a hole in the fuel tank of a Toyota Yaris left in a car park in West End, Wirksworth, and siphoned petrol.

Around 7.15pm on April 22, a Ford Fusion in the same car park was also attacked in the same way. Call 101.

Anyone with information about these crimes should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
