RESIDENTS have been urged to check that their sheds and outbuildings are secure after a spate of attempted break-ins.

Police are investigating three incidents in Inglis Road, Park Hall over night on Saturday into Sunday.

Sergeant Claire Greenaway said that nothing was stolen from the three sheds, but that locks were broken.

She urged residents to be vigilant and ensure that their sheds and outbuildings were locked.

"If they want us to come and talk to them about the use of Smart Water in their homes then we will do that," she said.

"We will be quite happy to look at if there are any ways to prevent their sheds or outbuilding being targeted, because unfortunately at this time of year it is the type of crime that becomes more prevalent."

Anyone with information on the incidents can contact West Mercia Police on 101, quoting reference 268S of 10/02/19.
