Officers in Sudbury are holding a free catalytic converter marking session to help reduce further crime.

The event is taking place on Tuesday at Setyres, Woodhall Business Park, Sudbury CO10 1WH between 9.30am and 11.30am.

Members of the public are invited to attend during the day to get their catalytic converters marked free of charge by officers to reduce the chances of becoming a victim of crime. No appointment necessary – just bring your vehicle along on the day.

Vehicle owners can also follow these tips:

- Keep private vehicles in a well-secured garage where possible, and if no garage is available, in a well-lit public area.

- Park vehicles in such a way as to make access to the catalytic converter difficult or parallel with another vehicle if you own one.

- Keep commercial vehicles in a locked building or compound.

- Use alarms, lighting and CCTV to deter thieves.
