Don't take the nuclear option

Wrapping your house in barbed wire until it resembles Guantanamo Bay isn’t a good idea. Not only does it suggest you’ve got plenty of stuff worth nicking, but if some ASBO-dodging twat so much as pricks his finger, you could end up in court. We know: ridiculous.

Michael says: "No, you can’t do that, it’s against the law. If you damage or hurt the burglar, bless him, you can get done for causing injury. Anti-climb paint on pipes is fantastic, but if you leave anything on your property, and that poor burglar gets cut, he can sue."
