"Please see the attached sheet which provides guidance on how to improve your security in a variety of ways."

PC Whitting added: "Please.... if you see anything or anyone suspicious call it in on 999 (if ongoing and of an urgent nature) or via 101 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or via the web chat."
