WORKMEN’s tools should be taken out of vans overnight, or left in locked cabinets.

There have been two reports of thefts from vans of high value tools in Glan Conwy overnight according to North Wales Police.

A message tweeted on the force’s community safety cent Twitter account said: “Our best advice if you can't empty your van is to further secure your tools in locked cabinets within the van and add extra security to the manufacture’s locks.”

Another tweet added: "Between 8-11.30pm last night a Ford Transit was stolen from Pengarth, Conwy. Keys not taken. Our advice is to add extra security to makers' locks and add a steering wheel lock."
