Warning signs have been deployed at allotments in the Wear Valley as a scheme to protect sites in the region expands.

Three allotments have already benefited from extra safety measures, with the project now being developed for two new sites as part of the Allotment Watch scheme, the Wear Valley Mercury reported.

The Neighbourhood Watch, in co-operation with Bishop Auckland Neighbourhood Police, will now work to secure two more allotments in the Woodhouse Close Estate.

Warning signs, to deter intruders and vandals, will be put up to cover some 96 plots.

The SmartWater anti-theft tool will also be deployed.

"SmartWater is an excellent tool in the prevention of theft. One only has to look at the fall in the number of domestic burglaries across the area in the last seven years to see that SmartWater and Neighbourhood Watch are at the forefront of these figures," John Raw, Wear Valley Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator, told the newspaper.
