[House burglaries]

We have seen an increase in house burglaries on properties where the occupier is either away on holiday or, the premises is a holiday home.

Could we remind people to leave a key with a trusted neighbour, have them check on the property regularly, fit a timer on a light and make sure the usual signs of none occupation are not visible – like letters hanging out of letter boxes, bins on drives, curtains open or closed at the wrong time of day, bins not put out on bin day, etc.
