We were burgled and our flat was ransacked. Only cash was taken, no electricals. They went through every single drawer and cupboard and threw everything everywhere.
Here are photos of the front door: https://imgur.com/a/ejPomQL
I live in a council flat so the door will (eventually) be replaced with the same door. We did not double lock the door, we only used the top lock. We think they broke in with a crowbar. When we arrived home we found that the key fit in the lock and it just spun round and round. The police had to ram the door to open it.
Do you think if we had double locked the door it would have been secure? both locks are ERA 35 x 35mm 6-Pin Euro Cylinder – Satin. If not, is there anything else we can do to strengthen the door or frame? I have heard of people using something called a London Bar or Birmingham Bar. I’m not sure if this would be applicable here. How much would that be likely to cost?
Any advice on this matter would be helpful.
