POLICE are urging people in a Herefordshire village to be extra vigilant after reports there was suspicious activity in the area. 

At around 1.30am on  April 3, two men were reportedly seen lurking around a property in Canon Pyon. 

It is believed they entered a garden through a bolted gate and tampered with a shed door. 


PCSO Adam Westlake, from Hereford Rural North, says nothing appears to have been taken, but is reminding people to remain vigilant. 

This includes:  

  • Secure your property: Ensure all gates, doors, and windows are properly locked, especially during the night. Investing in sturdy locks and security systems can deter potential intruders.
  • Be aware of your surroundings: Stay alert and report any suspicious activity immediately. If you notice unfamiliar individuals loitering or behaving oddly, don't hesitate to contact the police. 
  • Illuminate your property: Ensure that exterior areas of your property are well-lit to deter potential intruders.
