We would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate our advice from the beginning of July.

We know it’s really warm weather, but it’s important to consider whether you are leaving your home vulnerable to burglary.

We advise people to keep ground floor and other accessible windows closed overnight. You should also make sure your doors are properly locked with the key, rather than just pulling up the handle.
