Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire Police are urging homeowners to keep their windows and doors secure after a number of burglaries during the heatwave.
Thieves have been taking advantage of residents leaving them open because of warmer weather.
They’ve issue safety advice which you can see below:
“Our advice is to keep doors and windows closed if you are not in that room and make sure you close and lock them when you leave the house. All it takes is a few seconds for a burglar to reach inside an open window and take a set of car keys for example, or enter your home through an open patio door while you’re upstairs.
“Particularly through the night, make sure all ground-level doors and windows are closed and locked.”
