Police in Rutland have launched an initiative to warn residents of the dangers of leaving their home in darkness.
Light bulb-shaped leaflets are being put through the doors of homes in Rutland to warn residents about leaving lights off when they are not at home.
The action is part of a campaign to tackle burglary during the winter months.
Light timers are on sale at Oakham Police Station for the cost of £1.
The station’s front enquiry office is open Monday to Friday, from 10am to 2pm and from 2.45pm to 6pm.
