Police in Skegness have urged people not to leave Christmas present packaging on easy display in outside refuse bins.

The Skegness Neighbourhood Policing Team’s PCSO Dave Bunker said: “Now that we have opened all of our Christmas presents, please remember, packaging left on the outside advertises that we have new kit on the inside.

“Burglars know what to look for, please dispose of packaging carefully,” he added.

He has also urged residents to consider registering new gifts at www.immobilise.com, also suggested using a security marking option such as a UV pen or smartwater to make it easier to protect your goods from thieves.
