Over the past six months a number of incidents have been reported where gardens were entered by lifting and removing fence panels.  This may have been to gain entry to rear gardens and sheds or to enable thieves to remove items of property. 
If you have slot in fence panels please consider fitting brackets to the posts and panels to prevent them being lifted.  An alternative is to fix straps linking panels across the posts so that all the panels are linked together.
