Hi everyone

I have only just moved into the area and am very sorry to say that unfortunately I was burgled on Sunday night. The only thing which was taken was my Mac laptop and the police said that there have been many reports of similar burglaries taking place nearby (I live near Forest Hill School). Apparently the burglars come round in the early hours of the morning while people are asleep trying doors to see if there are any which arent double locked and then take anything they can quickly get their hands on. I have an almost new PVC door which automatically locks when you put the handle up but apparently there is a weakness in this door which can be exploited to open it using a screwdriver. If you have a similar door you must remember to double lock it using the key on the inside to prevent this from happening.

I do hope that there are not too many others who have had a similar misfortune!

Sophie
