Warning over burglary rise in Clacton
5:00pm Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
RESIDENTS have been warned to keep their doors and windows locked after a rise in Clacton burglaries.
Over a two week period at the end of August 18 houses were raided by crooks in Clacton.
Tendring’s community safety sergeant Andy McFarlane said: “We always warn people to lock their doors and windows, especially in summer.
“There is a tendency for people to leave their windows ajar because of the hot weather and that can make them a target.”
