A BLACK Audi, a laptop and jewellery have all been stolen in a spate of Oxford burglaries.

Police have warned residents to make sure their homes are secure following the thefts, which took place on Saturday and Sunday.

Break ins reported include properties in Sorrel Road, Nowell Road, Bayswater Road and Lockheart Crescent.

In one case the thieves gained entry by climbing over the back garden fence and using an unlocked back door, in another by breaking the front door and stealing car keys to vehicle parked outside.

Advice on home security can be found via the Thames Valley Police website.
