In one of my early blogs (see page 12) I talked about the importance of securing cat/dog flaps when possible and of removing any keys from the locks in the door where the flap is fitted as criminals can reach in and effect entry. There have recently been 3 burglaries in the Middle and Market Rasen areas of Lincolnshire where it is thought that the offenders gained access via the cat/dog flap. PLEASE REMEMBER TO SECURE SUCH FLAPS WHEN POSSIBLE AND ALWAYS LOCK DOORS AND REMOVE ANY KEYS FROM THE LOCK ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR
