Police have also advised not to leave valuables such as laptops on display in front of ground floor windows, as this makes it easier for burglars to reach and steal.

As well as this, on Monday afternoon, two men aged 17 and 22 years old were arrested on Portland Street, Lincoln on suspicion of theft of an oven from the University of Lincoln student halls on Campus Way.
