HOUSEHOLDERS are warned to be on their guard after intruders struck at properties in Keighley and Oakworth.

Overnight between Monday and yesterday, a burglar broke into a garage at Pickles Hill, Oakworth, and stole a bicycle.

And yesterday evening, someone entered a house at St Johns Way, Keighley, via an unlocked door, but fled empty-handed when the occupant's dog started barking.
