Warning over walk-in burglaries in Nottinghamshire

Residents have been urged to lock their doors after a spate of walk-in burglaries in a Nottinghamshire town.

Officers said thieves had been able to get inside eight properties in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, through unlocked doors or open windows, over the past few weeks.

Items stolen from the properties included purses, handbags and mobile phones.

Police have urged residents to keep their properties secure and keep keys and valuables out of site.
