Lincolnshire Police provide the following tips for personal health and safety:
1. Think Ahead - don't walk home alone late at night - arrange in advance to stay with a trusted friend or pre-book a taxi
2. Never leave drinks unattended in pubs or clubs - when you go to the toilet, ask your friends to keep and eye on your drink. Men's drinks get spiked too. If you suspect your drink has been spiked, contact a member of staff or tell a trusted friend
3. Don't show off your cash, mobile phone or laptop, or leave them lying around - never leave your bag, wallet or purse unattended and don't carry your chequebook and card together. Take oit protection for your credit cards and note all your card details at home, so that you can cancel them quickly if they're stolen
4. Try to go to the cashpoint in daylight if possible - be aware of people standing too close to you and always conceal your PIN. If it's dark, go with a friend if you can and don't check your money if full view
