Letter: In Brief

Sir: While in total agreement with the spirit of Jonathan Myerson's article "Irritations of Modern life: clean cars" (26 August), I would take issue with the idea that a dirty car is an anti-theft device.

I returned to my car to find that a thief had broken a window and made off with what a witness described as a "white pot of cash".

I have no idea what was stolen as my car is so full of rubbish passengers have their feet about nine inches above the floor.

I just wish he'd brought something a lot bigger than a white pot.
