Sussex Police is warning people to secure sheds and garages, as well as avoid leaving expensive equipment in the garden, as warmer weather sees a spike in burglaries.

The most popular items to steal from these areas are lawn mowers, pedal bikes, power tools, electrical garden equipment and quad bikes.

Thefts have recently been reported in Peacehaven and Newhaven.
