Police are urging residents to make sure they keep their valuables locked away securely following a spate of break-ins.

Officers warned people to make sure doors and windows are kept secure to their home, sheds and vehicles.

Members of the public should also move valuables away from windows and take them out of vehicles overnight.

The appeal comes after thieves stole hedge trimmers from an unlocked shed in Hemsworth Road, Woodseats, overnight on Tuesday.

Around the same time, offenders also stole golf equipment that had been left in a vehicle overnight in Thorpe House Avenue, Norton Lees.
