It's for her own good.

Householders worried about recession-fuelled burglaries will be offered discount vouchers for security equipment by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith this week.

The DIY store money-off scheme is part of a push to prevent the economic crisis sparking further rises in burglaries – which rose 4% in the most recent crime figures.

Alarms, window locks and timer switches are among the items which customers will be able to get at a reduced price from B&Q and Focus DIY.

The 10% off vouchers will be contained in a free advice pack which will also include help with assessing home safety and a ’before you leave the house’ checklist to put by the front door
