Bromley officers said today that since last Friday, break-ins have occurred every night in the BR5 and BR6 postcode areas.

Police are asking residents to properly lock-up when leaving their homes.

A police spokesman said: “PVC doors can be easily opened from the outside if they are not locked with the key from inside.

“Shutting the door and merely pulling the handle up does not in fact lock most of these doors, and it is then relatively easy for a skilled thief to pull the handle down and ‘pop’ it open.”

He added car keys should be kept out of sight or upstairs, as burglars are stealing high-end cars by entering houses to get the keys.
