Please remember we provide lots of advice on our website for keeping your car safe:







Create a natural defence against burglary

As we are entering Spring you may be looking at new planting. Planting particular shrubs (in their mature or semi mature form) along garden walls and fences can make it harder for burglars to access your property or put them off completely. To maximise this effect plant them close to each other.

We recommend planting any of the following:

Berberis                   Osmanthus                     Forget

Poncirus                   Crataegus                       Pyracantha

Aralia                        Chaenomeles                 Ribes

Oplopanax               Elaeagnus                       Robinia

Colletia                     Ilex                                 Climbing roses

Maclura                   Mahonia                         Ligustrum (privet), or laurel

Smilax and Zanthoxylum

Live in a ground floor flat or share a communal garden?     You can still make use of these tips by planting in front of ground floor windows to prevent easy access.


The Police Reference Number (PR) with each of the reports is shown in brackets. If you have any information on any of the reports, including CCTV, please contact us quoting the Police Reference Number (PR).
