WARM weather revellers are being warned to take extra care of their belongings when they visit the beach following a spate of thefts last Wednesday evening.

Sometime between 8pm and 11pm items from the bags of two people were stolen while they were on the beach.

Police Community Support Officer Nikki Payne said: "As we approach the nicer weather people should take extra care with their belongings when they visit the beach.

"I appreciate that this was during hours of darkness but in daylight hours, at times when the beach is even busier, the chance of theft is even higher.

"Bags should not be left unattended and valuables should be kept on your person, or with someone you trust."

If you see any suspicious activity or have any information regarding the thefts please call: (08452) 777444 or 999 in the event of a crime being committed, quoting crime reference number KE/09/1005 and KE/09/1006
