"In most cases, the diesel has been stolen overnight from parked lorries. Businesses should park their lorries inside buildings wherever possible.
"If this is not possible, park vehicles in a secure compound. At the very least, ensure vehicles are parked in a well-lit area."
Other advice to businesses includes making sure they leave as little fuel in the tank and to effectively use lights, cameras or alarms if they are available.
