Police probe 'unusual' burglaries in Barrow

Police are investigating what they describe as "highly unusual" burglaries in South Cumbria.

Items such as food, drink and cleaning products were stolen during three recent break-ins in the Infield Gardens and Crosslands Park areas of Barrow.

On the night of one of the burglaries, there was also a number of reports of garden gates being opened.

To reassure residents a local Streetsafe exercise has been organised, and police patrols increased.
