POLICE have issued an alert to residents in Corringham after recording an increase in shed burglaries in the area over recent weeks.

A statement from the Thurrock district policing team says: "Suspects have been gaining access to residential sheds, and it would appear they are targeting gardening tools.

"We'd like to urge residents to remain vigilant, secure your outbuildings and keep valuables out of sight.

"Take a look at your shed and consider how you would break in. It's worth having a good padlock on the door with no exposed screws.

"Pay attention to hinges, as these are sometimes easily removable. If you have windows then these could be vulnerable unless they're secured with wire mesh or grills. And keep it locked at all times."
