With warmer weather on the way, police are urging people to follow a few simple steps to avoid becoming victims of crime.
If you are working in your garden, make sure that areas of your house that you cannot see from the garden are fully secure, reducing the risk of a quick visit from any opportunist burglars.
Lock away garden tools when you have finished with them inside a shed or garage where possible.
