CLEVEDON residents are being urged to make sure their homes are secure following a spate of burglaries in the town this week.

On Wednesday and yesterday (Thurs), police received reports of numerous burglaries and attempted burglaries where in several instances offenders got into properties through unsecured back doors or garages.

Officers believe the incidents could be connected and people who saw anything suspicious are being urged to call them.

Burglaries occurred in areas including Windsor Close, Kingston Avenue, Wickfield, Brookfield Walk, Oakley and Fosseway.

North Somerset community safety sergeant Dave Hayward said: "We would advise residents to make sure that all doors and windows on their property are kept locked, even those that are on the back of the house and harder to access.

"To lessen the temptation for thieves, residents should also keep their valuables out of sight from potential thieves and definitely don't leave any valuables in your cars."

Anyone with information about the burglaries should call police on 0845 456 7000.
