Police have appealed for help after two homes in a south Norfolk village were burgled after doors were left unlocked.

The first burglary happened between 2am and 5.30am on Tuesday, April 11, when a laptop was stolen from a property in Newstead Walk after getting in through an insecure door.

The second break-in took place on the same morning at a property in Aldrich Way, where a handbag containing cash, keys and bank cards was stolen.

Officers are linking these burglaries and are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area at the time.

Police advise homeowners to make sure their doors, windows and gates are locked, and to leave a light or radio on when out to give the appearance of someone being at home.
