Thefts from Garden Sheds

Sadly there have been a number of thefts from garden sheds recently. The police offer the following advice

Put away all tools and equipment and ensure that all outside sheds and store cupboards are securely locked when not in use.

Bring the tools inside if you do not have a garden shed or outbuilding.

Use plant protection - such as thorny shrubs.

Install outside security lighting which comes on automatically.

If you have a burglar alarm, why not extend it to cover outbuildings and sheds?

Photograph valuable garden plants or ornaments.

Mark your property with your postcode. This makes stolen property easier to trace and it can be positively identified as yours.

Check that your household insurance policy covers theft from your garden and outbuildings.
