SEASONAL shopping can turn into rich pickings for thieves.

Now small silver bells are being used to ring out a warning to would-be pickpocketers.

Police have joined forces with the Community Safety Unit, based at West Lindsey District Council, to highlight the issue and offer advice as shops get busy in the run up to Christmas.
