Leading provider of business security systems, AlertSystems, has urged businesses to consider installing their own CCTV systems

Leading provider of business security systems, AlertSystems, has urged businesses to consider installing their own CCTV systems after Ledbury town centre cameras failed to capture footage of three attempted break-ins.

The advice comes after intruders tried to force their way into three separate business premises in the Homend area of Ledbury. In each case, they targeted the rear of the shops but were unable to gain access.

In their attempts to break in, two back doors were taken off their hinges by the burglars at one of the premises. The presence of a steel door at another of the targeted businesses was enough to keep the would-be thieves out.

Police are facing an uphill battle to identify the suspects, not least because there is no usable CCTV footage of the incidents. Any images captured by the town centre cameras are redundant because the offences took place to the rear of properties, where there is no surveillance equipment.

Uncertainty currently surrounds the actual time of the attempted burglaries because the shops had been locked up after Saturday trading on August 2nd and the damage was only discovered on the morning of August 4th.

Independent provider of CCTV security systems, AlertSystems, has expressed its sympathy to the businesses concerned but praised their efforts at making it as difficult as possible for the burglars to force entry. At the same time they cited the lack of CCTV footage as a reason for all businesses to invest in their own surveillance systems.

A spokesman for the company said: “We are sorry to hear the reports of attempted break-ins at a number of premises in Ledbury town centre, but at least the rear doors of their properties were sufficiently strong to deny the burglars access.

“However the incidents should serve as reminder to businesses that all entry points at their premises could be targeted. Town centre CCTV cameras trained at the front of shops were unable to capture footage of these incidents because they took place to the rear of the properties concerned. Traders should really think about whether all entry points are effectively monitored, and if they are not, consider investing in their own CCTV systems.”
