POLICE are warning shed owners to think security following a number of break-ins at allotments in South Somerset.

Several sheds at allotments in Ilminster were raided by burglars between 7pm on March 19 and 9am on March 20 and various items were stolen including a rotavator and a petrol strimmer.

Now police are not only appealing to anyone who has information about these break-ins to come forward, but have also urged shed owners to think more about their security and to think “shed-u-cation.”

A police spokesman said: “The humble garden shed has increasingly become a happy hunting ground for thieves. With security on many houses upgraded traditional burglars are actually opting for easy pickings at the end of the garden.

This applies to all sheddies really and the police have some more tips here
