Sutton police issue warning about burglaries
Sutton police are warning drivers to remove all property from their cars and vans following an increase of theft from motor vehicles in the area.

Officers believe quiet residential streets are being targeted, especially where lots of cars park, such as in Stonecot or North Cheam.

Some of the crimes are by opportunistic thieves looking for cars that are left unlocked, in others windows are smashed to gain entry.

Items stolen typically include mobile phones, iPods, lap-top computers and even loose change kept for parking.

New lights for Woking's car parks
Four of Woking's town centre car parks are to have their light fittings replaced with energy efficient alternatives.

The new lights will have automatic sensors that will illuminate fully when triggered by a movement, but dim when there is no movement.

Councillor John Kingsbury says that it will help reduce energy wastage and save the output of around 666 tones of carbon monoxide emissions.

Work will take place in off-peak hours and all sites will remain in constant use.
