POLICE are advising people to lock up their jewellery following a spate of high value Asian gold thefts.

More than £80,000 worth of jewellery has been stolen from homes in Suffolk in the past few months, with ten reported thefts in Ipswich and two in Martlesham.

Police have released a list of measures to help prevent the theft of valuables, particularly Asian gold, which is typically of 22ct or 24ct and of rising value.

Owners are urged to keep valuables out of sight, preferably in a safety deposit box in a bank, or have a European standard safe installed.

For further information or to help police with their investigations, contact your local crime reduction officer on 101.

On 23 June last year, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. As I have said before, that decision was no rejection of the values we share as fellow Europeans. Nor was it an attempt to do harm to the European Union or any of the remaining member states. On the contrary, the United Kingdom wants the European Union to succeed and prosper. Instead, the referendum was a vote to restore, as we see it, our national self-determination. We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.
