At least two cars were broken into after being abandoned on Bradwell Moor, as conditions became increasingly treacherous due to heavy snowfall.
A spokesperson for the Bakewell and Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “From time to time motorists may have to leave vehicles in the highway or lay-by due to weather conditions, mechanical breakdown or road traffic accident.
“If you have to do this, please inform your local police where you left your vehicle, the reason why and remove all valuables.”
