A new Simply Business documentary created in partnership with On The Tools sheds more light on the tool theft crimewave that's sweeping the country.

In the video we speak to West Midlands Police about what they’re doing to tackle tool theft. We also go undercover at car boot sales and second-hand shops.

The video’s only 10-minutes long – the perfect length to watch with your morning coffee.
