Can't believe what has just happend.

I wake up at 5.30am to noise/ someone in my kitchen. I think nothing of it as my mother usually gets up and makes tea.
All the hall way lights get turned on which is unusual.
To my horror it's not my mother in the kitchen, as coming up the stairs bold as brass as if they owned the place are Two big men.
I'm in my bed and I always sleep with my bedroom door open, I dare not move as they peep through the banisters into my room. They enter the sitting room shut the door and turn the lights on.
At that point I run upstairs to my mother and father screaming someone s in the house.
What was more terrifying is that the burglars only ran out of the house when they heard a man run shouting downstairs.
The scum stole my mothers kitchen telly,her bag with her keys and cards in and my small laptop which was on the sitting room chair.
Who knows what would have happend if I didn't wake up.
Those upvc doors are not safe.

That must have been really terrifying, :ohmy:
Sorry to say its the TORY GOVERNMENT Fault 100%; Massive Cuts to Police,If you report the incident, as you will
have to do as part of your Insurance policy, Best you will get from the Police will be a "Crime Number" Very
unlikely they will call round, Let alone Investigate. :ohmy: :angry:

Best you can do is invest in automatic Outside Lights & a Good Burglar Alarm system with CCTV.

I would also keep a Weapon Handy, but that is a bit of a legal minefield.
At very least fit a lock to your Bedroom door, and keep it shut and locked at night.

Another good cheep tip, Get an Invisible Felt tip pen and mark all valuables with your post code,
One can then notify all local secondhand shops of Stolen items.
With No reliable police force and skyrocketing crime caused by Benefit Cuts its Down to US to do the best we can.

Sorry to hear that catwoman. As Paul says Tory cuts are behind this. Also the police don't regard burglary as a crime worthy of investigating. If you had been rude to your neighbor the police would be round to your house in no time and charged you with a hate crime.

sorry ot hear about your situation catwoman i hope you got a good look at them and gave a discription to the police by the sounds of things this is an organised group of burgelers and most likely not the first or last time they will do this to someone and if your lucky they will eventualy get caught and there M.O and description will match up with your report and you may see some justice.

highly recomend beefing up security and pauls suggestion is spot on get a dog it dosent have to be a big dog any dog that barks at intruders is good enough to alert you that somethings wrong and they are a huge dererant to this type of criminal activity

Sorry to hear this happened Catwoman. It seems arrogant or stupid to turn the lights on and hopefully this will backfire on them. Often there is a spate of burglaries in a neighbourhood and turns out to be the same group and they get too cocky also may run up against the wrong person before they are caught. It was unsettling enough when I got burgled whilst out over 30 years ago and doubt I will ever forget it but I cannot imagine how I would be feeling if I had actually been in.

So sorry to hear this Catwoman. No doubt you will be left with raw emotions and `what if` thoughts. As my mum always tells me, material thing are just that, so be good to yourself. Your mum`s cards will need to be cancelled at her bank but you will already know this. The police should check all CCTV at all cashline machines too if the cards were used, or attempted to be used. Keep us posted and thankfully you and your family are okay. x

Wow, scary situation Catwoman, sorry you had to go through such a horrible experience. Thankfully none of you were harmed. You definitely need to get more secure doors fixed to keep bastards like that out. Hope they get caught but in this day and age chances of that get scarcer and scarcer.
