Burglars are not welcome

SIGNS have been installed in seven Henley roads to deter burglars.

Police put them in Clarence Road, York Road, Church Street, Hop Gardens, Greys Road, Greys Hill, War Memorial Place and the top of West Street on Wednesday.

The signs warn burglars that the residents have bought Smartwater kits to mark their property so it can be identified if stolen.

“Smartwater” is a colourless liquid that can be detected using ultra-violet light. Suspected burglars who have been arrested by police can be screened to see whether they have been in contact with marked items.

Insp Mark Harling, the head of Henley police, said: “The message I would like to get across to people is to make sure they ensure their homes and property are secure, including sheds and outbuildings, take advantage of free crime prevention advice and if they see anything suspicious, phone the police and let us know.”
