Burglary in Winsley

At 8.00 pm on Saturday (1st. December) a house at the extremity of the village was burgled. The resident was at home at the time. She heard a noise at the back of the house and found the back door open. It had not been locked or bolted. She then became aware that an intruder was leaving via the front door. Sadly, he made off with a large sum of money.

The Police response was impressively swift, but little evidence had been left; it is not known whether the burglary was purely opportunistic or whether the property had been watched in advance of the crime.

May I stress the advisability of keeping all external doors locked or bolted at all times, including when we are in the house.
