The purse and bank cards were stolen from a Toyota Aygo.

Meanwhile the windows of two VW Golfs, one parked in Stonebridge Road and the other in Chaucer Road, were also broken.

Police are urging people to be vigilant and to park in secure, well-lit areas and to ensure all doors and windows are locked.

Sergeant Colette Todd of the Canterbury Community Safety Unit said: "We are urging people to be extra vigilant and if they see anyone acting suspiciously around vehicles to call us on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.

"We would also like to remind people not to leave valuables in their vehicles as these can be an open invitation to opportunist thieves."

Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/66043/18.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
