There was an attempt made to break into a house on New Lane last week. The offenders tried to burgle the house overnight between 6pm on Friday 24th & 1pm on Sat 25th October.

Can residents be reminded that with the dark evenings upon us burglaries are more likely, people should try to make houses look occupied after dark if out or away on holiday – use light timers and close curtains wherever possible. Don’t leave doors unlocked even when you are home or leave valuables such as handbags or car keys on open view. Be vigilant and report anything suspicious – see it, report it.
