From the Government's Crime Reduction Strategy
If you think you have an intruder, only you can decide how to deal with the situation. Think about what you might do now – you might not be thinking clearly in a real incident.
You may respond differently if you are alone in the house, or if there are other people there.
You could make a noise and hope it puts them off, or keep quiet and hope they don't come into your room.
You could keep a phone in your bedroom so you can raise the alarm. This may also make you feel safer.
It is generally best not to challenge an intruder.
Brilliant. Do nothing yourself, try and hide, feel safer by calling the police. Great.
Fat lot of good it did them.
