Huge numbers of break-ins have been reported recently, with Littleover in Derby becoming one of the most burgled places in the country and Chislehurst in South-East London, with more than 20 robberies recorded this year.

Earlier this month, four men broke into a home with weapons including a crowbar, screwdriver and sledgehammer. The men, described as stocky with Irish accents, held children hostage and sprayed fake acid on their elderly grandparents in a raid on a 1.4 million home in Chislehurst.

Described as a robbing spree, these are not isolated incidents, nor are they opportunists acting alone but rather organised gangs moving from place to place, leaving behind a trail of destruction and frightened communities in their wake.

Security film and blast mitigation film can be used to reinforce your glass, dramatically increasing the time it takes to smash through and giving occupants, the police and security guards the opportunity to respond.
