Police appeal after Exmouth burglaries

THE police are urging people to make sure access to their home is secure after a spate of burglaries at Exmouth properties.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall police said, due to the good weather, it was important residents secured doors and windows at their property at night when leaving their home.
