POLICE are appealing for information after three overnight burglaries in Burnham.

Homes in Maple Way and The Cobbins were broken into between October 10 and 11.

In two of the burglaries car keys were stolen and cars were taken from the driveway.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "To have three burglaries like this in one night is very unusual.

"Firstly, if you saw or heard anything last night which you think could help our enquiry, please contact Chelmsford CID.

"If you have CCTV in these roads, we would also be really interested to hear from you if this is likely to have caught any activity.

"Secondly, we request that you make sure your front doors are secured properly overnight and that you remove car keys out of sight.

"If you see or hear anything unusual or that you feel is suspicious, please call 101 or 999 if urgent."
