Motorists are being warned nothing is safe in there cars – even Christmas presents left in the boot.

There have been between 10 and 15 thefts from cars left in and around Macclesfield centre, in the last week alone, police say.

And in the run-up to Christmas they are warning car owners not to leave anything valuable in their vehicles.

Items stolen in the incidents include cash, sat navs, Ipods, mobile phones and even presents left in the boot.

Sergeant Kerrie Snowdon said in some incidents, thieves had collapsed the back seats of vehicles, once inside, to get access to the boot.

She said: "We would like to remind people, especially in the run up to Christmas, not to leave valuable items in cars.

"People are starting to buy Christmas presents now and bigger things.

"But the boot is not necessarily the safest place for them.

"Nothing of any value should not be left in your vehicle

"And you need to make sure cars are locked and secure."
