A man has been arrested after a woman returned home from a night shift to find her conservatory window had been left ajar.

Officers from Nottinghamshire Police attended the house in Beech Avenue, Newark, shortly after 8.20am on 6 September.

The window was wide open and a key had been moved from inside.

Nothing had been taken and it is not believed the offender had gone into the main house.

A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary in the early hours of Friday morning (10 September) following police enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Andy Hall said: "Reports of burglary will always be dealt with thoroughly and treated seriously. Officers have remained committed to this investigation and as a result we have now arrested a man as part of their enquiries.

“Burglaries can hugely impact on victims. Not only are they left without certain items, which can be physically or sentimentally valuable, but it is also a complete breach of privacy in the place that most people consider their safe space.

"We encourage people to ensure their homes are left secure and for neighbours and other residents to report any suspicious activity to us as soon as possible."

People with information can call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
