Gardai have renewed warnings of thieves targeting 'car pool' parking sites along the M1.

Three unofficial parking locations have emerged along the motorway in recent years, junction 16 at Ardee junction 17, Castleblayney and junction 18 at Ballymascanlon for commuters who are in a car pool.

With these locations having been hit before by thieves, gardai have once again renewed warnings as a series of break-ins to vehicles have been reported in recent weeks.

A garda spokesman told the Argus that motorists should ensure vehicles are locked, with no valuables left inside.

'We are also appealing to any passing motorists who witness suspicious activity at these sites, such as people walking in and around cars and vans to contact us immediately.'
