It happened last Saturday at 3pm. Our flat was broken into and a lot of computers, ipads etc taken. We live on Long Lane and police said that there are a lot of burglaries in the area at the moment so just a warning to be careful and be on the look out for anything suspicious.

Katmac, that is horrible, is there cctv nearby? hope they catch them. sad reflection on our times, in a time of great poverty 40s and 50s living in long lane we, in strood house on the ground floor with a key on a piece of string slept secure in our days when no one is hungry and unclothed (well mostly!) theft and burglary is on the increase. The first crime we experienced was living in guinness flats,pages walk and someone got in through the window and broke into our gas meter, and we had to pay the money back to the gas board! and that was in the 60s..

Where about on Long Lane if you don't mind me asking? 3pm on a weekend is a pretty brazen time to be doing a burglary!

Yes we have them on CCTV and you can see their faces. Hopefully police can catch them.
