Police always say, when you go to bed, take your keys, car keys, phones and wallets with you. Too often these are left by doors, letterboxes and windows and so are easy pickings while you sleep. Also make sure all downstairs windows and doors are properly locked and closed.

True - but I think no matter what the police say, there will always be someone who gets in from work, throws their keys in a bowl in the hall in easy reach of the letterbox, leaves the laptop on the kitchen worktop by the open window and thinks crime only ever happens to other people.

I really feel for these people who've had their home invaded in this way but to wake and find your house has been ransacked - surely that's got to make *some* sound? I'm a deep sleeper but any unusual house creak and I'm wide awake!
