What is the first thing someone should do after being burgled, before calling a local locksmith?

In the unfortunate event of a burglary, your first action should always be to contact the local police in Brighton immediately. This is especially important if you discover a burglary while still outside of the property – do not touch or move anything as there is a risk you could accidentally contaminate evidence. If you have CCTV installed, check the cameras, and if you saw the burglars write down their description as soon as possible. It’s important to then make a list of all stolen items and their value, which can help both in the retrieval of your goods and with insurance claims.
