Hi, thanks for reply. Unfortunately it is not uncommon at certain times in the UK, mainly due to the rare metals tha cats contain, Google it and read the BBC news pages. It seems to go in phases and some areas are more targeted than others. Mainly 4X4s no doubt due to greater ground clearance and easier access. Land Rover Freelanders and Mitsubishi L200s seem to be common targets.
