The use of various routes could throw potential attackers off, as most hijackers follow people for days before pouncing.

The Automobile Association has released tips for drivers on how to limit the chances of being hijacked.

Spokesman Gary Ronald said: “Leaving your passenger window open just a fraction may prevent smash and grab incidents as it makes the glass more flexible, allowing the window to absorb the sudden impact of someone trying to break it.

“Also, stay alert, always make sure your car is locked and stop a few metres behind the car in front to leave room for a quick get-away, if necessary.”
