Don’t let up on security, police warn

POLICE have urged residents not to lose sight of security during the sunshine.

Officers say householders are more likely to leave windows open or doors unlocked during warm weather, but it can make them vulnerable to thieves, especially if valuable items are in sight.

And if car keys are left on display, people’s vehicles could be taken as well.

Residents are also advised to make sure their sheds and outbuildings are securely locked as they may not realise the value of the items they keep inside them.
