Thieves are on prowl in Doncaster, say police

Residents in a South Yorkshire town relaxing over the royal wedding weekend are being warned of thieves looking for easy pickings.

Police in Doncaster said there had been an increase in thefts of garden furniture, ornaments and even hanging baskets across the town.

Officers said that "opportunist" thieves would pass by a property and see something they like or could sell.

Sgt Jez Fitzgibbons said everyone should remain security aware.
