CCTV footage has caught the moment when yet another catalytic converter was stolen.

Police are investigating the theft from Gates Garage on Chelmsford Road when the £500 car part was stolen from a Mitsubishi Shogun at midnight on Monday.

The case is the forth of its kind in the area. So far two have been taken from Felsted School and one from Stansted.

Thieves are thought to be interested in the expensive platinum contained within.

A Dunmow Police spokesman said: "In three earlier cases the thieves have managed to cut away the catalytic convertor from the vehicle without anyone seeing or hearing a thing. Now we have them on CCTV.
