Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

AT THE start of Bri­tish Sum­mer Time, po­lice are ask­ing peo­ple to value the con­tents of gar­den sheds and step up se­cu­rity in their gar­dens.

With thieves tar­get­ing valu­able ride-on mow­ers, quad bikes, trail­ers, power tools and cy­cles, in­ves­ti­ga­tions show the ma­jor- ity of thefts are com­mit­ted by peo­ple who check the prop­erty be­fore­hand.

When ques­tioned, vic­tims re­mem­ber see­ing sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or have call­ers of­fer­ing gar­den work or tree felling.

Po­lice are of­fer­ing home se­cu­rity ad­vice on 01233 896336.
