Thanks to a local for this info:
Just to warn people that an intruder entered a house in Church Street this morning, whilst tradesmen were working and the front door was open.He was scared off by the householder and walked off in the direction of Cot Hill. The police were called and turned up amazingly quickly….but nothing was taken and he was out of sight.
At the risk of sounding like a police report…please keep an eye out, as we all tend to be a little lax about locking the door when we are inside or in the garden. Some of us have been out letting our neighbours know but please spread the word….apparently he has tried this before.
Don’t panic but be a bit cautious.
