Eleven men have been sentenced for their parts in a professional plot to steal and sell cars burgled from homes across our area.

Police say the gang, a mix of burglars and stolen car handlers, were responsible for the biggest car key burglary operation ever uncovered in the country.

The thieves would target high-value vehicles, mostly 4x4s, by breaking into the owners’ houses and stealing the keys to avoid having to bypass security systems.
