Our local Beat Policeman has told us that the forest is being heavily targeted for dwelling burglaries. He says that it is not uncommon during the Christmas build up for offenders to travel in from outside the New Forest and target properties that appear blatantly unoccupied.
Ashurst, Brockenhurst and Beaulieu have so far been targeted. He asks that residents lock doors, set alarms where fitted and be alert to properties left empty by their neighbours over the forthcoming festive period.
Thank you.
