Screw it or lose it

SCREW it or lose it is the message from police and the local Neighbourhood Watch Association.

The two groups have joined forces to raise awareness of the theft of car registration plates.

It is believed many plates are stolen and transferred to other vehicles which are then used by speeding drivers or to getaway without paying for fuel.

A number of stolen plates have even turned up under kids' skate boards.

There is a solution in the form of tamper proof screws. To get your car registration plate fitted with the screws, visit Morrisons in Heckmondwike between 10am and 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday June 12).
