What if... I get burgled?

Been burgled? Here’s the crucial steps you need to take in the aftermath...

If you come home to find you’ve been burgled, here’s FIVE things you should do:

CALL THE POLICE

Phone the police immediately. Tell them what’s happened, and then do as they advise.

DON’T TOUCH

Don’t touch anything until the police say you can – you could destroy valuable evidence.

LIST IT

As soon as possible, make a list of everything that’s been stolen or damaged.

CLAIM IT

Contact your home contents insurance company, tell them you want to make a claim.

BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES

Think about improving your home security so stop it happening again.

Final thing – don’t go into your house if you think the burglar might still be inside. Phone the police from your mobile, or go to a neighbour’s house and call from there.
