“Meanwhile, don’t forget to ensure all doors and windows are kept secure if you are not near them.

“Lock away any tools or garden items which could be stolen or used to break into your home.

“Consider installing alarms or CCTV and get your valuable property like computers and phones security-marked, as it will make it very hard for any criminals to sell on.”
