Families are being reminded to lock their doors after a home on the outskirts of Norwich was burgled.

The burglary took place at some time between 12.15am and 7am on Saturday, April 3 in Gunton Lane, New Costessey.

Thieves entered the property through an insecure back door and stole several items including a quantity of cash and a black 34 inch LG flat screen television.

An Apollo black and silver mountain bike, which was in poor condition, was also stolen from the garden.

It is believed that due to the size and amount of property stolen, that more than one person was involved and that they left via a footpath at the end of Gunton Road which comes out on Marlpit Lane.

DC Carly Belcher, Bethel Street CID, said: 'I would like to remind people, especially with the weather improving, not to leave the doors and windows of their homes insecure, even when they are at home, as this can give thieves the perfect opportunity to enter and take property.'
