Hayley Bosworth claims that Warwickshire County Council's decision to turn off street lights for a few hours at night has led to a rise in crime.
The council say there are no statistics to back up this claim and that crime in the county has reduced over the last few years.
Warwickshire County Council say:
There had not been any statistically significant increases in crime that could be directly linked to the street lights being switched off overnight, either in North Warwickshire Borough or the county as a whole.....Overall, crime in the county has declined over the last few years.
– Warwickshire County Council
A further analysis of the impact of the switch to part-night lighting on crime figures will take place once this has been operational for 12 months throughout the county.
– Warwickshire Police
House burglary levels are down in North Warwickshire but we understand the effect this type of crime can have on our communities. We currently have a number of operations focusing on burglary because although the figures are down, we are not complacent.
They were responding to a woman's claims that the council's decision to turn off street lights for a few hours overnight had led to a rise in crime.
Hayley Bosworth had her car stolen from her sister's drive in Birchmoor, Warwickshire at the weekend.
She's convinced the council's policy of turning off street lights between midnight and 6:30am is to blame.
She claims it's happened to other people too.
Warwickshire County Council says the policy is designed to save £500,000 a year in electricity bills, cut carbon emissions, and reduce light pollution in the area.
A woman whose car was stolen from a village in Warwickshire is blaming a council for switching off the street lights. Hayley Bosworth's car was taken last weekend from outside her sister's home in Birchmoor.
She says turning the street lights off for several hours overnight has led to break-ins in the area. But Warwickshire County Council says partial street-lighting has not led to a significant rise in crime.
A children's book borrowed from a public library in Warwickshire 63 years ago has been returned during an eight-day fines amnesty.
Staff at Rugby Library were handed the copy of The Adventures Of Pinocchio last week, and found it had a return date of New Year's Eve in 1950.
– Colin Hayfield, Warwickshire County Council
We always wanted to use the fines amnesty to welcome people back who haven't visited us for a while and we hope the borrower is enjoying our services again.
We are pleased that after all this time the borrower felt that they could return the book.
If the book been been returned after the amnesty ended, the unnamed library user would have faced an 18p per day penalty, although the local authority caps its late-return fines at £5.22.

Warwickshire County Cricket Club Captain, Jim Troughton, will be ruled out of a pre-season tour to Barbados after undergoing a back operation next week.
Director of Cricket at Warwickshire, Dougie Brown, said:
"After missing the latter part of the 2013 season with an injury to his lower back, Jim has been taking a full part in the team’s pre-season programme since we returned to training in November. However after suffering further discomfort it is clear that he now needs to undergo an operation...
... Whilst it is frustrating to lose Jim, we must give him the best possible chance of regaining full fitness as soon as possible. His absence will give some of our young batsmen more time in the middle whilst we are in Barbados and help them challenge for a place in the starting eleven."
