Important note from Greater Manchester Police

"There have been alot of burglaries in the Heatons area lately. The offenders appear to be carrying out a recky during the day where plant pots and other garden items are being moved to enable properties to be accessed more easily by burglars in the evening and overnight. Obviously we need any such movements to be reported as soon as possible. Remember to always lock your doors and windows, make sure you use your alarm at all times when you leave the house and also when you go to bed at night. When you go out leave some lights on in the property. Don't become a victim of crime."
