PCSO Will Liddell, from the Kings Langley and Hemel Hempstead South East Safer Neighbourhood Team: said: “Each victim has lost items that were vital for their jobs and their livelihoods.

"Each vehicle was locked and secured, so offenders have forced entry in order to take what was not theirs.

“We are conducting enquiries but are appealing to anyone who was in the car park between the times stated to think back – can you recall anyone acting suspiciously?

"Please get in touch if you think you have any information.”
