‘Lock up and keep it safe’ is the message from police this week.

The advice comes as part of Operation Julius, a crime crackdown countywide, which has been launched to coincide with the nights getting darker sooner in the run up to Christmas.

Burglaries increase in winter and homeowners are urged to secure windows and doors, fit alarms, consider installing security lighting and leaving a light on.
