West Yorkshire Police shares its advice for making your home safe during the winter.

Keeping your house well lit, particularly if you're late back from work, is the force's number one tip - it recommends using timer lights to make your house look lived in.

Remembering to lock doors and windows, keeping valuables out of sight, planting hardy bushes and checking your doors meet minimum security standards could also help to keep burglars at bay.
