'Since the launch last spring of the revised Corsa range, thefts of the model in one force area dropped to just three,' said John Winter, head of Vauxhall's vehicles security and safety team. That is down from 128 in 1994 and 69 in 1995. There were no Omega thefts at all, which indicates that we have got it right across the range.'
