Local police are reminding householders to keep their homes, outbuildings and vehicles safe and secure.
They are urging people to close windows, lock doors and do not leave garden or sports equipment outside overnight.
Open windows, open doors, vacant properties and unsecure sheds are easy targets and will attract thieves. Police also advised, “It is essential that you contact police on the non-emergency number 0845 600 8000 if you notice anything untoward, no matter how insignificant it may seem. If you notice any suspicious vehicle take a note of the registration number and make and model of the car and pass this information to police.”
