A VILLAGE has been affected by multiple burglaries.

Several sheds and outbuildings have been broken into in Bretforton, which has led to police performing more patrols in the area.

A spokesperson for Evesham SNT said: "The SNT have attended several properties in the Bretforton area that have been victims of burglaries in sheds and outbuildings.

"Crime reduction packs and advice have been issued.

"SNT would advise that sheds and outbuildings at risk should have their security inspected by owners and, if possible, items of value should be stored elsewhere for the time being.

"Vigilance can reduce your risk of becoming a victim.

"SNT will be performing patrols of the area."
