Warnings have been issued after an unusually high number of break-ins around Ripley during the festive season.

Raiders broke into stock-laden shops and homes filled with gifts.

The worst of the raids saw burglars drill into a safe at Jack Fulton’s food store on Oxford Street, late on Boxing Day.

Burglars also used cat-flaps to enter homes in the town.

In the weekend running up to Christmas there were four burglaries in Ripley alone.

A police spokesperson confirmed the number has been higher than usual.
