Victim Support responds to BBC News online on the impact of burglary on victims.

Mark Castle, Chief Executive at independent charity Victim Support, said:

“Burglary not only robs victims of their physical possessions – it can rob people of their sense of security at home as well, a place where everyone should feel most safe. This crime can also leave many people feeling vulnerable, frightened and distressed.

“It is important that all victims know that reporting an incident of burglary will be taken seriously by the police and that the offence will be thoroughly investigated.”
