A post on the Great Yarmouth Police Facebook page said: "We are urging the public to be vigilant following a recent spate of catalytic converter thefts with thieves targeting vehicles parked in car parks during the day.

"Please follow these useful tips - Park in well-lit areas (and in view of CCTV); Fit an anti-theft device; Get your catalytic converter marked; Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb making theft more difficult and please report anything suspicious to the police."
