More than half of the burglaries recorded in Yarmouth in the past three months have been at insecure properties.

Norfolk Constabulary have issued a warning after a spate of burglaries of which more than half were walk-in burglaries.

Superintendent Roger Wiltshire said: 'The chance of becoming a victim of a burglary remains low, however, you can reduce this risk dramatically by taking some simple steps.

'I would advise people to get into the habit of locking their doors. Especially when you go to bed or if you are going to spend some time in your back garden.'

On Friday, June 3, a property on Suffolk Road in Gorleston was the latest target of a walk-in burglary.

At approximately 4.30am someone entered an insecure back door and completed a search before stealing a handbag and a mobile phone.
