Criminal gang linked to 40 burglaries across Sussex

A number of burglaries across Sussex are believed to have been carried out by the same group of criminals.

Officers believe the people involved vary between locations but are part of the same organisation which may be responsible for 40 burglaries.

Between 17 September and 28 October areas targeted included Copthorne, East Grinstead, Crawley and Crawley Down.

A silver Audi has been used as a getaway car, using false number plates.

The burglars are targeting homes in some of the more expensive areas.  They break doors or windows to get in and after searching the properties steal items with a preference for gold jewellery.

Surrey Police carry out anti-terrorism survey in schools

Teenagers have been identified as people who are, in particular, targeted by extremist or terrorist-related organisations.

The government has a strategy in place, called ‘Prevent’, which aims to support and safeguard those between 14 and 19 years old from the risks of terrorism and extreme views linked to it.

Surrey Police is carrying out a survey at schools and colleges throughout Reigate and Banstead as part of an anti-terrorism process.

They want to find out how much young people know about the strategy; how to report concerns and access support networks.

The survey is being conducted over the next 6 weeks.

For more information on Prevent you can go to the Government website:
