Motorists are being urged to remove all traces of expensive satnav equipment when leaving their car unattended in a bid to cut down on car crime and car insurance claims.

Police in Leeds are trying a new initiative to cut down on car crime, this week they will be handing out cloths to drivers to enable them to wipe away any tell tale 'suction' marks left on their windscreens from satnav equipment.

Drivers are being urged to take the extra time to wipe away any left over suction marks and to take their satnav from their car with them. Although this may take a minute or two more, as Seargeant Paul Cliffe (West Yorkshire Police) says: "(it's) nothing against the cost and inconvenience of having your car broken into".
