There has been a huge rise in catalytic converters nationally. Catalytic converters clean up harmful gases before they exit the exhaust pipe.

The precious metals used in them are highly valuable.

Witnesses or anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Kettering General Hospital has been contacted for comment.
