Residents alerted to Birkdale burglaries
by Ollie Cowan

MEMBERS of Sefton's Home Watch scheme have alerted residents in Birkdale following a spate of burglaries in the Clifford Road and Richmond Road area.

A number of incidents have taken place in the evening and overnight between between Thursday, September 25 and Monday, September 28.

A spokesperson for Home Watch said: “It has been reported that in some cases entry was made through insecure doors.

”Many burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Burglars only need to spot an open widow, an unlocked side gate or try the handle of an external door to see if it is locked before they make their move.

“Residents should ensure doors and windows are locked those who have UPVC doors should remember to close the door, lift the handle and turn the key. Only then, when the key is turned, is the door locked.

”Also, avoid leaving keys and valuables near windows, doors, letter boxes and dog/cat flaps.“
