Yew Tree Estate in Denton which has recently experienced an increase in residential burglaries

Police in Tameside have identified four crime hot spots currently experiencing higher than usual criminal activity.

These neighbourhoods are now regarded as priority areas with police applying additional resources to combat criminal activity there.

Cockbrook in Ashton Under Lyne has seen a rise in residential burglaries and vehicle crimes in recents days as has the neighbouring area of Dukinfield immediately to Cockbrook’s southern border .

Yew Tree Estate in Denton has experienced an increase in residential burglaries and Gee Cross in Hyde, has seen a spike in residential burglaries and vehicle crime.

Police add that these these “hot spots “ do not represent a crime epidemic but a relatively small increase in activity from criminals and reported crime in those areas.

They ask residents of these areas to be extra vigilant in the coming days and take safegaurding precautions to secure valuables, vehicles and property, including sheds and garages.

There is a general increase in residential burglaries across Greater Manchester as the dark nights draw in at this time of the year.

Police in Tameside will be mounting “Darker Nights Policing Operations’ as increased funding becomes available for overtime for officers.
