The same night, a centre console, steering wheel and golf clubs were stolen from a BMW parked in nearby Spindlewood End.

Sergeant Jasmine Bloomfield of the Ashford Community Safety Unit said: "Similar thefts have been reported in north and west Kent and we will be working closely with our colleagues in other areas so that we can identify the culprits as swiftly as possible.

"In the meantime we ask residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to call 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.

"We also urge car owners in the Godinton Park area, particularly those with BMWs, to park their cars in a well-lit place, on a driveway or in a garage overnight if possible."

Police have issued descriptions of two men they would like to speak to: one is described as being tall and wearing a long coat and a baseball cap.

The other is described as shorter and was wearing a beanie hat and a rucksack.

Sergeant Bloomfield added: "We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered BMW parts for sale."
