Police turned up at a coffee morning in Lode to offer advice and address concerns following a spate of burglaries.

PCSO Annie Austin told her audience of recent burglaries – including some from houses- that have affected Lode, Bottisham and the Swaffhams.

She said police believe they may be part of a wider series of burglaries across county borders.

She said after the meeting her purpose was to “listen to some of the concerns raised by local residents, and to offer them reassurance and some practical security advice.

“One of the issues raised is when to contact the police if they suspect suspicious behaviour”.

She said that if a resident sees something they feel is suspicious to call 101. This, she said, could be a person acting in an unusual manner or an unfamiliar vehicle in unexplained circumstances.

“Err on the side of caution and report this activity to us directly on 101 the non-emergency number, via our website or through their local Neighbourhood Watch coordinator who will also pass this information to us,” she said.
