Police issue burglary warning in villages

Residents of two North Somerset villages are being warned after a spate of burglaries this week.

Thieves broke into three homes overnight from October 12-13 in a Long Ashton sheltered housing complex through ground floor bathroom windows, taking bank cards from a wallet in one of the properties.

Two residents in Manor Road, Abbots Leigh, reported their sheds being broken into on the same night when a pair of walking boots were stolen outside the front door. A third resident also reported that a pair of trainers were taken.

Neighbourhood PC Martin Faithfull said: “While burglary is a relatively uncommon crime in this area, we always recommend that you lock windows and doors at night and set the alarm if you have one.

“It’s a good idea to keep small valuables - handbags, wallets, keys, mobile phones or jewellery - securely hidden away.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact 101, quoting reference number 5215017760.
