This section is for information that the Council wishes to bring to the notice of residents:
The Police Neighbourhood Action Team has been receiving reports recently from our neighbouring villages of car keys being burgled from residents that are then used at a later date by thieves to take their cars. Please be vigilant against this (and any other crime) and keep your car keys in a secure place and if you spot anything suspicious at all either in the village or surrounding countryside (e.g. hare coursing) then report this to the police using their 101 number. In addition, unfortunately, there has been a burglary conducted in the village recently so please do be vigilant and make sure that home is safe, especially if you are planning to go away on holiday shortly - research has shown that burglaries do follow a pattern and if there has been one in the area then there are likely to be others. For advice on protecting your home then please do contact North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods who are your community safety partnership for the area.
