Police have issued a warning after there were several burglaries in the county in recent days where people entered properties through insecure windows.
Police are offering the following advice: •Ensure all your windows and doors are locked when you go out and go to bed – don’t forget, burglars can squeeze through small windows. •Don’t leave windows or doors open on the ground floor when you’re elsewhere in the house – it only takes a few seconds for a burglar to get in and out. •Keep valuable items, including car keys, away from open windows. •Don’t leave your car keys on display in the house – put them in a drawer. •Set your alarm when you are out and when you go to bed.
