Hampton police have warned residents to double lock their doors after a number of homes were targeted in the area.

Eight burglaries were reported in April, while a ninth was reported today (May 1), all using the same method.

Police said: “All incidents have been during the day - mainly afternoons.

“All have been front door entries where glass has been broken so burglars can reach in to open the door.

“Advice - double lock your front door when you go out.”

If you witness an ongoing burglary, call police on 999.
