Police said there has been a spike in incidents as people get out and about more in their gardens in the sunshine.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Wilson, said: “Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of sneak-in burglaries in Doncaster, during which thieves have stolen car keys from properties, typically gaining access by open doors or windows before taking the car from the driveway.

“My final piece of advice is not to leave valuables on display, either in the home or in your vehicle. You can find further crime prevention advice on the front page of our website – www.southyorks.police.uk.”
