|£3 dual sun/frost screen from Wilkinsons|
Cambridgeshire Police tell us that three cars were driven away with ease, by thieves this morning, as motorists left their cars unattended, engines running, and keys in the ignition, as they used the car heater to de-ice windscreens.
A grey Vauxhall Astra was stolen from outside a home in Pieces Lane, Waterbeach, at 6.35am;
followed by a silver Alfa Romeo taken from High Street, Haddenham, at 7.10am;
then thieves took a black Volkswagen Eos convertible from Orchard Row, Soham, at 7.40am.

All three vehicles had been left with the keys in the ignition, when they were stolen.
Community Safety Officer Sue Loaker said: "These thefts should be a timely reminder to never leave your car running while unattended.It may be tempting to pop indoors while your vehicle is warming up and de-icing, but it gives thieves an easy ride. Never leave your vehicle unlocked with the keys in the ignition, it is not worth the risk." Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
