The North/South divide is often a cause for debate and latest analysis from TRACKER shows that 64% of cars stolen in the north of England in 2015 were stolen with keys.

Drivers will be making 28m separate Christmas getaway car journeys on major roads this year – but unlike in previous years, plan on spreading their journeys across several days which could mean fewer of the usual jams, suggests new RAC Traffic Watch data.
While Christmas Eve is expected to see the most getaway journeys, with 3.8m planned, it could be Friday that ends up being the busiest day on the roads – as leisure travellers taking 3.5m trips battle with the last day of regular traffic before Christmas. And Christmas Day is expected to see a similar level of getaway traffic, again totalling some 3.5m separate journeys.
