One vehicle has so far been recovered by Greater Manchester Police.

PCSO James Hails said "All of these vehicles were stolen without the need for a key, these are often referred to as keyless thefts or relay thefts, where offenders will sit in a car nearby and copy the signal of your keys to open and start the ignition of a car.

"This can be prevented by purchasing a Faraday bag or box to block the signal. These are very cheap compared to the cost of a stolen car and the issues caused by its theft."
