Police campaign Police campaign

AN increase in burglaries throughout November has prompted the police to issue a warning to locals.

The new campaign highlights the importance of protecting homes and valuables from opportunistic thieves at Christmas.

Superintendent Scott Green said: “Over the festive season, thieves can take advantage of the fact that peoples’ homes will be full of Christmas presents or vacant as they go away for the festive season.

“Often, items of sentimental value which can never be replaced, including Christmas presents, are taken.“

I hate this time of year for this very reason. Christmas is a time to be happy and jolly but there's always that niggling feeling in the back of my mind. It was only last year my little lads bike was stolen in broad daylight from our back garden. And the side gate was locked plus it's about 6 foot high. I even believe we were at home when it got taken!Just goes to show that these thieves will stop at nothing
