Police crime prevention advice for the week:
Rural crime has three distinct components; a motivated offender, a suitable target and a lack of a guardian. However opportunity is the key ingredient. You can reduce opportunity by taking notice who is out and about and talking to them particularly if they aren’t locals. Lock your house, remove keys from vehicles, close access gates particularly to your driveway and house and keep an eye on neighbouring properties. Report any suspicious behaviour immediately to Police 111.
