VILLAGERS are being offered free alarms following a spate of shed burglaries.
Households in Wheatley Hill are being offered the security devices to combat a recent increase in shed break-ins.
Durham Police and Wheatley Hill Parish Council have been working together to increase awareness of the problem and promote improved security measures.
Coun Morris Nichols has agreed to pay for 200 shed alarms out of his neighbourhood budget which will be given out free to residents in the Wheatley Hill area.
The alarms will be limited to one per household and can be collected from the Heritage Centre, Cemetery Grounds, in Woodlands Avenue between 9am to 5pm.
The Parish Council can also arrange for alarms to be fitted for any elderly and vulnerable residents. For further information, please contact John Davies or David Lamb on 01429-824402.
