As a reminder, here's Cheshire Police's advice on shed security:

Please ensure all windows and doors to garages, sheds and outbuildings are secured. If your garage door is attached to the main house, ensure any connecting doors are also made secure.

Fit a good quality hasp and staple with a padlock to all sheds and side doors to garages.

Remember to use a hasp and staple that can be bolted to the door and frame.

Fit coach bolts or tamper proof screws to secure them.

Use disc padlocks which have a less exposed shackle and are less prone to attack.

Make sure that garden tools or ladders that could be used to force entry into your home are not left lying around or accessible from an unlocked garden shed.

Don't leave valuable items on display through windows.

Mark your property; if it is impractical to use an ultra violet pen consider other methods such as DNA property marking schemes or engraving on the property.

Lawn mowers and bicycles are a less attractive target if your postcode and house number is marked on them.

Always lock or chain cycles together or on to something fixed or bulky while in the shed or garage to reduce the ability for the offender to steal them.

Register your valuables at www.immobilise.com . This is a free recognised service for members of the public and businesses to record all valuables and is used by UK Police forces to identify recovered lost and stolen property.
