Police would also like to take this opportunity to offer some burglary prevention advice:

- Your home is only as secure as its weakest point of entry. That’s why it’s so important to have doors and windows that are as secure as possible

- Simply shutting the door won’t prevent burglaries. Double-lock the door every single time you leave the house

- If you have high value items such as jewellery, watches, passports, credit cards, computer data and identification documents, you may want to consider storing them in a safe

- Burglars tend to target windows as they generally offer easier access than doors.

- Keep them locked, and take a good look at your windows from the outside, removing potential access points where you can.

- Are there walls, bins or garden furniture that could be used to reach windows?
