We are urging residents in Swadlincote and surrounding villages to review their home security following several burglaries.

The latest incidents happened on Saturday 16 November. A burglar sneaked into a house in New Street, Church Gresley sometime between midnight and 5am. They took a PlayStation and controllers.

That same night, a house in New Street, Church Gresley was targeted via an unlocked door and on Friday 8 November, a thief sneaked into a house in Weston Street, Swadlincote.

In each case, the homeowner was inside when the burglary took place but they did not see the thief.
