“If you are leaving your house unoccupied during the festive season, please review your security.

“There are a number of products on the market that you can purchase which may make your home less attractive to a burglar. Let a neighbour you can trust know that you are aware and ask that they keep their eye on your house.

“Do not leave any Christmas presents or other valuables on display.
