Police have come up within novel way to remind people how to protect their valuables and property over the Christmas period.

Officers from South Yorkshire Police have made their own spoof of the latest John Lewis Christmas advert to show how people can take better care of their homes this December.

Just like the John Lewis ad, the video features a trampoline, but instead of woodland creatures (and eventually a dog) enjoying the gift.

However, this time it is three police officers after they manage to enter the back garden as the door was left unlocked.

The video was released as part of the force's Don't Make It Easy campaign.

The original John Lewis ad was released in November and cost £1m to produce. It ends with the strap line "Gifts that everyone will love" and features cover by The Vaults of the song One Day I'll Fly Away.
