Lead thefts are a problem across our area - residents are encouraged to check porch/garage roofs and bay windows and report any thefts promptly.

Burglaries to outbuildings (sheds/ garages/ workshops) continue to be reported along the A36 corridor - thieves are targeting garden power tools and other equipment.

We have been asked by the Police to remind residents to consider security improvements - inexpensive alarm/ improved locks/ security lighting.

Record make/model and serial numbers of power tools and garden machinery, take photographs and consider overt security markings to make it harder for thieves to sell on. 

Promptly report sightings of suspicious vehicles, registration numbers are important, to the Police.
