A spokesperson for Richmondshire’s neighbourhood policing team said: “Please ensure any garages or sheds are secured with good locks and security measures are in place.

“We strongly advise fitting a shed/garage alarm which can be purchased for as little as £10 from DIY stores or online, they are battery operated and are very easy to fit.

“It’s also a good idea to lock items together or to a secure fitting inside your building using a cable lock or chain.

“Your local police team are aware and have the area on their patrol plan.”
