A WHITE Mercedes has been stolen from the driveway of an Andover home.

The vehicle had been parked on the front drive of a house in the St Birstan Gardens area of Saxon Fields.

But at around 4.05am today (Wednesday) it was taken.

No entry was gained to the house and the keys to the vehicle were not stolen.

Police have asked anyone who might have information to get in touch on 101, quoting reference 44200044692.

Officers have taken the opportunity to share advice as to how people can best protect their vehicles.

The advice includes:

  • Always lock your vehicle, even when filling up or parked on your drive
  • Keep the keys out of view at home and away from the front door
  • If you have an electronic car key, keep it in a security pouch to prevent it from being scanned by thieves
  • Double check your electronic locking – manually check that the doors are locked before walking away
