Keep items safe when shopping

Have your say

SHOPPERS out and about taking advantage of the after-Christmas sales are being urged to keep an eye on their belongings.

A number of incidents of pick-pocketing in the town centre have been reported to police in the past couple of weeks.

Police advise shoppers to keep handbags fastened shut, and don’t leave purses, wallets or other valuables in pockets which are easily accessible to thieves.

Information to police on 0300 111 0300.
