A EVENT to protect motorists from vehicle crime has been a great success, police have revealed.
Hilton and Etwall Safer Neighbourhood Team revealed that 47 vehicles attended its recent event at Scropton Village Hall where tamper-proof screws were fitted free of charge.
These screws are impossible to remove and they prevent number plates being stolen and used to commit crime.
The team said it was a great success.
It follows on from successful events in Midway and Swadlincote recently.
