Police are urging people to take extra care following reports of opportunist thieves trying car doors along residential streets in the Hyde area.
A number of items have been stolen from vehicles as a result when doors were discovered to have been left open.
As the dark nights are drawing in, the Hyde Neighbourhood Police Teams are reminding residents to check and double check that you have secured your vehicle, and that there are no valuables on show.
Meanwhile, residents in the Newton area of Hyde are being invited to ask questions of their community policing team.
Greater Manchester Police's Hyde Newton team will be holding a live Q&A web chat on Monday 19 October between 5pm and 6pm.
People can submit any questions they may have before and during the event by heading to https://app.sli.do/event/mnipopbm/live/questions.
