Police are warning homes and businesses to keep their doors and windows secure during the hot weather.

Three recently reported crimes highlight the issue of insecurity:- Two offences in remote areas involved offender(s) walking into residential properties in broad daylight whilst the occupants were at home.

The offender(s) simply helped themselves to expensive mobile ‘phones, laptop computers and tablets and left the house without being seen.

In another offence offender(s) managed to get into a house during the night through a small conservatory window that had been left open.

They took electrical items and two expensive bikes that had been left in the conservatory and left using the key that had been left in the door lock.
