HOUSEHOLDERS living in Loddon and the South Norfolk area are being reminded to look after their homes and vehicles as the warmer weather and lighter evenings approach.

Officers are advising people to pay extra attention to security to avoid being a victim of crime.

Wymondham, Hethersett and Mulbarton, Loddon and Poringland Inspector James Brown said: “As we approach the summer months people will be outside enjoying the weather more. I would like to remind people to remember to close windows and doors if going out, and to lock front doors if they are outside in their back garden.

“South Norfolk is an extremely safe place to live but please remember to put garden equipment such as furniture, cycles and toys away safe at the end of the day, to keep them secure.”
