Research from the provider also revealed that the items most commonly stolen from cars in the UK are CDs, GPS devices and mp3 players.

Sue Longthorn, managing director of Admiral, said: "Our data shows the items most commonly claimed for following a theft and therefore the things we commonly keep in our cars.
