Devon and Cornwall Police have been dealing with an increase in items being stolen from sheds, outbuildings, farms and other isolated locations. 

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Typical items stolen range from small power tools such as gardening equipment through to trailers, quads and farm and plant machinery. In some cases, fuel has also been taken."

Advice to protect your property:
1. Mark all property with a postcode where possible.
2. Note down any unique serial numbers for identifiable items and take photos of anything that is unique to you. For example, if you have painted your lawnmower pink or you have some custom decals on your chainsaw, record that in a photo as it makes getting items back to owners much easier if located!
3. Ensure your items are stored securely and locked away wherever possible.
