Cornish families are being urged not to fall prey to thieves because of the sunny weather.

Pirate FM has learnt 62% of Duchy and Devon burglaries in the last month were because windows or doors were left open.

Mark Bolt, Acting Detective Chief Inspector for Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "Please just take that extra bit of vigilance and close any doors and windows that you can't keep an eye on. Burglary's very, very scarce in this county. Don't worry about it, just give us that extra bit of help, lock the windows, close the doors.

"It's anything, ranging from a cake cooling on the windowsill to mobile phones or pots of money just inside on the windowsill. Don't give opportunist thieves the chance to actually enter your house."
