Zetland FM Local News - 6th May 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Friday 6th May 2016.
Police have issued a reminder to people to keep their windows and doors secure in their homes and vehicles to prevent insecure burglaries and thefts from vehicles.
With warmer weather on the way, officers are also reminding people to keep valuables in vehicles out of sight during hot weather as it provides the perfect opportunity for thieves to target your car.
It only takes a few seconds for a criminal to steal from your car or property. Insurance companies could also deem insurance to be invalid where a vehicle or a home has been left insecure.
Police advice is to keep windows and doors of homes locked at all times, to keep vehicles secure and to move items such as sat navs, mobile phones, tablets car keys and cash well out of sight.
Officers have already issued advice around not leaving car keys close to front doors in order to deter burglars from trying to steal them through letter boxes.
Cleveland Fire Brigade are urging people to come clean with their cooking.
It follows a spate of recent kitchen fires being sparked by a build-up of grease and fat on cookers.
More than half of all accidental fires at home start in the kitchen. Cleaning surfaces can only take a few seconds but can be vital in reducing the chances of fat bursting into flames and causing serious damage, injury or even death.
Fire Brigade advice is to keep your oven, hob, grill and microwave clean, as a build-up of fat and grease can easily catch fire. Make sure the oven, hob and grill is turned off when you have finished cooking.
You should also chuck out your chip pan, as every year they cause over 8,000 fires, 3,000 injuries and 30 deaths nationally.
As ever, in the event of a fire you should get out, stay out and call 999.
