“Don’t do it!”

Police up in Antwerp are repeating a warning for visitors to Christmas markets: beware of pickpockets!

Police spokesman Wouter Bruyns: “When people are having fun they sometimes forget to wear their purse or wallet on their person. People put handbags and rucksacks away in a corner when they have had a drink.  Don’t do it! Always wear your wallet on your person.  Don’t take valuables with you either.  You don’t need an iPad on the Christmas market.”
