Glasgow cops issued a stark warning about leaving keys in cars while trying to defrost in the mornings: <\/p>\n<\/p>\n

This morning our officers were able to gain entry to 10 high value vehicles in one estate alone, where the keys were in the ignition&the engine was running.<\/p>\n

When defrosting your car, remain with your vehicle! Your car could be gone in seconds&insurers would not cover the loss.<\/p>\n
