Summer Burglary Warning

As the schools get ready to break up at the end of this week and thousands of us get ready to go on our holidays we're being urged to make sure we keep our home secure.

Putting your house lights on a timer or getting a friend to pop over and collect the post are just a couple of things that West Midlands police say can stop your house being burgled while you're away this summer.

It's as we hear the summer holidays can be a prime time for burglaries.
