Holiday home security calls (From York Press)

YORKSHIRE people are being urged to think about home security before they post on social media while on holiday.

Research by home security company UAP found that nearly a quarter of Yorkshire homeowners have posted on social media about their holidays, without thinking about the fact it shows their house will be empty.

Half of people admitted to leaving doors unlocked when they’re outside, and 60 per cent don’t know the brand of locks on their external doors.

UAP’s Barry Haplin said holiday season is the ideal time for burglars to strike, so people should be careful on social media.
