Be alert - Burglaries in the area of Sidegate Lane, Ipswich

From an email I sent to Rushmere residents today:

Over the last week we have had a number of attempted burglaries in our area.

Residents in Whitby Rd and Beverley Rd have reported suspicious behaviour on their excellent community facebook page and the police have informed me that there has been a spate of burglaries or attempted burglaries in Rushmere over the last 3 days - in Hutland Rd, Stradbroke Rd and Sidegate Lane.

In two of the incidents it seems the intruder entered the house by an open door.

If you see anything suspicious in the area report it to the local police by calling 101.

Please be extra observant during the hot weather when more doors and windows may be left open and please check on neighbours especially if they are living on their own or you feel are vulnerable.

Thank you for your help

Cllr Alasdair Ross
