Warning follows theft of garden furniture

The local Neighbourhood watch team has put out the following message:

"We would like to bring to your attention a recent theft of garden furniture occurring within your local area.

"The Items taken included a cast iron table and chairs.

"It is important that we all protect our property during the winter months. If you do leave items in the garden you should be identifying issues such as visibility of item(s) to the public, ease of access and amount of time the property is unsupervised.

"Crime prevention measures acts like a great deterrent to thieves. This can be applied in many ways by closing/locking garden gates, good light sensors, keeping valuable items out of the public eye, posters or stickers that a dog resides at the address or installing a CCTV system.

"If you feel like you could use further target hardening advice regarding this matter then visit our website or attend your local Police Station to make an appointment with a local Officer. Any reports of similar incidents should be reported to the Force Non-Emergency Line; either 101 or 0300 330 0101 if outside the district."
