In the past couple of weeks we have received reports of break-ins to properties on the Square and Crescent whilst the homeowner has been at home. We ask all neighbours to take extra precautions and ensure that your property is as secure as you can make it. But also to look out for any suspicious behaviour in the area and notify neighbours. The police have reacted quickly in these cases. If this happens to you please call 999 as soon as possible.
