Boat users are being urged to protect their property as the summer weather begins to attract more people to riverbanks.

Cash and credit cards were stolen from the Longbridge Boat House, Iffley Fields, Cowley East, Oxford. The matter was reported to police. Force spokesman Lucy Ferguson said: "This sort of crime becomes more commonplace as the weather improves.

"We would just remind people to make sure their property is secured before they take to the river."
