Due to the common interest on allotments, it is highly likely that someone will have noticed anyone new hanging round the area, or anyone paying particular interest to what is in other peoples sheds. Please contact the police if you think that you can help with this enquiry.

I regularly comment upon different types of fraud offence, one example which occurred this week was when someone paid electronically for a holiday cottage in Spain which was advertised on a website. The money disappeared but nothing else was ever heard from the cottage owners. Please be aware that some websites only act as hosts for private advertisements and do not make any guarantee about the cottages advertised. As such, this is a private deal between the advertiser and the customer, exposing both to risk. Always book properties through an intermediary which guarantees or backs any transactions undertaken through it.
On Friday, two vehicles parked up in Delamere Forrest were broken into and handbags were stolen. I cannot stress often enough or too strongly NOT to leave valuables on display in your vehicle it is just tempting theft.
