Sergeant Greg Pochin said: "While we continue our proactive work to target these opportunistic thieves, we ask trailer owners to remain vigilant and review their security arrangements.

"Cover the trailer up, store it in a garage or keep it out of sight – don’t leave it on display for passing potential thieves.

"Use a hitch lock and/or wheel clamp to secure the trailer where possible."

Anyone with information about the thefts should contact Kent Police on 01843 222289.
