It gets better and better:

Residents in Surrey and Kent villages have been ordered by police to remove wire mesh from their windows as burglars could be injured.

Those poor burglars. This comes a few days after this:
A teenage yob who almost killed a young athlete when he threw a brick through a car window has escaped with a £200 fine.

It’s a bit strange the police didn’t fine the victim for getting in the brick’s way.
