The metropolitan police tell us that bikes, mowers, sports equipment, power tools and garden tools are the top items commonly stolen from sheds.

Our police forces have warned that people don’t tend to give their outbuildings, sheds and garages the same attention to security that they give to their homes. Yet sheds and garages are commonly used to store valuable, expensive property and burglars, knowing this, will generally try these easy targets first.
