PLEASE could you make your readers aware of a car theft which occurred last night.

My BMW was parked outside my house in Drayton Grove when it was stolen.

It was taken without keys or any sign of forced entry (broken glass, etc), possibly by some sort of device that the police say criminals are using to deactivate your key when you try to lock it.

The thieves then enter the car using some sort of re-programming method for a new key.

I have chased it up with the police, who have simply told me: "It is probably on some shipping container going abroad."

Please make Ealing residents aware of this new method of car theft.
