The summer has certainly arrived with temperatures being high the last couple of days; however, don’t let this lovely weather cloud your judgement, Norfolk Police are asking you to consider the vulnerability of your vehicle if left for long periods of time at coastal car parks and beauty spots. Motorists are advised to remove all valuables from display and from the vehicle where possible.
Opportunist thieves will be on the look-out for personal property left on view.
Also with this weather please consider your dogs if taken them out with you, do not leave them in vehicles unattended, Pc Squires South Norfolk Engagement officer said: ”Temperatures in vehicles become hotter than the outside and can cause distress to your dogs, if you can’t take them out at your destination then consider leaving them at home.”
Finally, Norfolk is well known for its maze of open waterways and on a hot day the water may look an inviting place to cool down. Please remember the rivers around the broads are unsuitable for swimming in and have hidden dangers such as a sudden change in depth, decreases in temperatures and unseen objects and currents, which can cause even the strongest of swimmers to get into difficulty very quickly.
