Hertfordshire police are giving away free UV (Ultra Violet) security marker pens so that local residents can mark any valuable gifts they receive over the festive period.

Officers suggest items such as bicycles, laptops, and mobile phones should be marked with the owner's house number and postcode to help locate the items in the event of theft.

Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Samantha Griffin says she has left 40 marker pens at Bryan's Homecentre in Brookmans Park and 35 at DJS Hardware Store in Welham Green.

She says if there is a demand for more she will drop them off.

The UV security pens leave a mark that is not visible to the naked eye, but which become visible when examined under a UV lamp.

Hertfordshire Constabulary has a list of recommendations for those planning to mark their goods.
