POLICE are urging residents to secure their sheds following a spate of break-ins.

Around 15 sheds have been broken into in the past week in Ely with thieves targeting tools.

They have been overnight between Tuesday (February 21) and yesterday (February 23) at the Deacons Lane allotments.

Gardening equipment such as tools, lawn mowers and rotorvators were stolen.

PCSO Jo Andow said: “If anyone has seen this equipment or has any information about the break-ins please call police.

“Myself and other colleagues from the local neighbourhood policing team will be conducting a marking event on Sunday, March 11 between 12pm and 2pm.

“We will be offering security advice and engraving tools so please come along.”
