Burglar alert

Have your say

WEARSIDERS can pick up top tips on how to keep burglars at bay at a special event this week.

Washington police launched Operation Eleven earlier this month after an increase in overnight burglaries in the area.

As part of the operation, officers are hosting a crime prevention event tomorrow at the Millenium Centre, Concord, from 9am to noon.

Officers will be on hand to give out free shed alarms and advice on how to lock out thieves.
