THIEVING FORD: Sidmouth’s ford has been blamed as a major culprit when it comes to a specific crime statistic.
Figures show reported thefts from vehicles, logged between August 2011 and August this year, remained the same at 28 when compared to the previous 12 months.
“The ford is the biggest offender,” said Sergeant Andy Turner. “People report their number plates missing and six months later we find them washed up at the bottom of the ford.”
