How safe is your house - we investigate the locks fitted to

:00:17.:00:21.

millions of homes. Burglars and West Yorkshire have known them for

:00:21.:00:31.
:00:31.:00:33.

years. I won by other using them. He just break the lock. Also denied,

:00:33.:00:38.

grave digger. We need a man who is on call 24

:00:38.:00:44.

hours a day as a funeral director for Bradford's Asian communities.

:00:44.:00:51.

The family really do appreciate what you're doing. And the cycling

:00:51.:00:57.

legend. We discover Beryl Burton, the greater say, that -- the

:00:57.:01:07.
:01:07.:01:14.

greatest cyclist never to compete West Yorkshire has the highest

:01:14.:01:20.

burglary rate in the country and there is a particular type of

:01:20.:01:25.

Brechin has started in Bradford that is on the increase. -- of

:01:25.:01:30.

break-in. There is a lot fitter to millions of houses up and down the

:01:30.:01:37.

country that can be broken in seconds. -- a lock. They still sell

:01:37.:01:44.

these in DIY stores. The laptop a has gone, the mobile phones have

:01:45.:01:51.

gone, everything that was sellable. Believe it or not, it will only

:01:51.:02:01.
:02:01.:02:03.

take two minutes to go through a Wodehouse in Leeds. This is an

:02:03.:02:07.

increasingly familiar had -- side for scenes of criminal

:02:07.:02:13.

investigators. I walk up because I heard a loud bang. I went to wake

:02:13.:02:18.

up my boyfriend. He got up and went downstairs. We looked outside but

:02:18.:02:23.

we could not see anyone around. We went back to bed and did not think

:02:23.:02:28.

much more of it. When we got up this morning to go to work, we open

:02:28.:02:32.

the front door and found that the outside of the front door lock had

:02:33.:02:41.

been prised open, sort of forced open. Rebecca is by no means alone.

:02:41.:02:44.

Locksmiths working for the security firm think they have been called

:02:44.:02:50.

out almost every day to security break-ins whether lock has been

:02:50.:02:59.

smashed. He explained that it was there different type of Locke, an

:02:59.:03:04.

old fashioned type, and he recommended a new type of lock.

:03:04.:03:08.

This is a a Europrofile lock. They are fitted to millions of homes

:03:08.:03:13.

across the country. The problem is that some burglars have found that

:03:13.:03:17.

it is very easy to break them and then just walk in through your

:03:17.:03:23.

front door. It first started in the Bradford area and no more of a

:03:23.:03:27.

quarter of all burglar's -- of all burglaries in West Yorkshire use

:03:27.:03:36.

this method. Peter Finlay as a career burglar. He is now going

:03:36.:03:38.

straight, but reckons he has burgled literally thousands of

:03:38.:03:48.
:03:48.:03:49.

homes. What does he make of the locks? I would just snap along.

:03:49.:03:57.

is simpler, quicker. -- I would just snapped the lock. Figures for

:03:57.:04:00.

this type of burglary have risen steadily in West Yorkshire. What

:04:00.:04:04.

can be done about it? If you're not sure about the standard and quality

:04:04.:04:09.

of the locks, contact your local crime prevention officer. Think

:04:09.:04:14.

about getting in touch with a not- for-profit organisation, of which

:04:14.:04:22.

there are a number in West George and alone. -- in West Yorkshire. At

:04:22.:04:29.

the moment, there are no locks on the market which cannot in a new

:04:29.:04:33.

standard. They are vulnerable to a specific type of attack. It can

:04:33.:04:39.

take anything between 50 seconds and two minutes to force the locks.

:04:39.:04:43.

We want to ensure that the new British Standard locks are a lot

:04:43.:04:48.

stronger than that and can resist attack. I would not want to put a

:04:48.:04:52.

time frame on it, but the testing is extensive and the new locks are

:04:52.:04:59.

in the process of being tested. Between 50 seconds and two minutes.

:04:59.:05:03.

We have been told that many of these locks can be broken a lot

:05:03.:05:07.

quicker than that. To demonstrate just how easy it is to break in

:05:07.:05:15.

using one of these locks, we are meeting with a formal -- of former

:05:15.:05:19.

burglar who is now a security expert. A member of the public as a

:05:19.:05:24.

it allowed us to test the theory on their front door. You're happy with

:05:24.:05:31.

what you're doing. The door is locked. Ready when you are. Off you

:05:31.:05:41.
:05:41.:06:11.

Michael, that was 42 seconds. That was slow. Very slow for will stop

:06:11.:06:17.

how easy was that to get in? I was very surprised how easy it was.

:06:17.:06:21.

That broke off very easily and all I had to do then is take the

:06:21.:06:27.

mechanism out. That really shows just how easy it is. It is amazing,

:06:27.:06:33.

absolutely amazing. When you look at the security on the Lochend, --

:06:33.:06:39.

on the lock, you gain get through that so easy. 42 seconds. You're

:06:39.:06:43.

not doing this every day. Someone who knows what they're doing, who

:06:43.:06:46.

knows how fast that could have been? I reckon you could cut that

:06:47.:06:53.

down to 15 seconds. Really? That is quite worrying, isn't it? It is. A

:06:53.:06:58.

big worry. We have arranged for a security company to fix the broken

:06:58.:07:08.

lock. The security officer was not surprised by how quickly he broken.

:07:08.:07:11.

There does not surprise me. It was the first time he attempted to do

:07:11.:07:18.

it. If he took this kind of lock out of circulation, we that are

:07:18.:07:25.

long way to helping? Yes. That is easier said than done. Many

:07:25.:07:30.

councils and housing associations have lock replacement programmes,

:07:30.:07:33.

there are still hundreds of thousands of these cylinder locks

:07:33.:07:40.

on homes across Yorkshire. Was to be done? We have come to the Master

:07:41.:07:47.

locksmiths Association to find out. At this testing facility, the great

:07:47.:07:53.

new locks through a series of tests. Typically, that would be operated

:07:53.:07:59.

either 30,000, 50,000 or 100,000 times. So this is about testing new

:07:59.:08:06.

locks? It is about durability. After you have done a number of

:08:06.:08:11.

operations you want, you could to key in at any Judita still

:08:11.:08:21.
:08:21.:08:21.

operating. What is this? This is a torture machine. It twists things -

:08:21.:08:31.

- torsion machine. We have set this one up to deal protest. -- to do up

:08:31.:08:38.

test. At parties moving that way, trying to remove the plug. This is

:08:38.:08:41.

testing what is happening of someone is trying to pull the

:08:41.:08:45.

locker part? Absolutely. So you're taking the same approach that a

:08:45.:08:50.

burglar might take? Yes. We replicated using certain tools. We

:08:50.:08:54.

want to see that that performs to a certain level. The idea behind that

:08:54.:08:58.

is to delay any kind of burglar who wants to get into that property. We

:08:58.:09:02.

want to slow them down as much as we can. Unfortunately, there are

:09:02.:09:08.

still plenty of the cylinder locks out there. All the couple of days

:09:08.:09:15.

after Rebecca was burglar, -- was burgled, another burglary has

:09:15.:09:21.

happened. I did not realise the extent of it. My husband said, or

:09:21.:09:24.

laptops have gone, the mobile phones have gone. Everything that

:09:24.:09:28.

was down here that the sellable. Christine had thought her locks

:09:28.:09:33.

were secured but she certainly does not now. I was advised this morning

:09:33.:09:35.

at a fight to get through my insurance company, they would

:09:36.:09:39.

probably do like for like and I was not happy at the thought of that. I

:09:39.:09:44.

would not feel safe in this house of the pit the same kind of locks

:09:44.:09:48.

back on. I made some enquiries and the police advised me and that is

:09:48.:09:53.

why we have got these in. With so many walks on the market, I can be

:09:53.:09:57.

confusing. If you're not sure about how good they are, the best advice

:09:58.:10:04.

is to talk to your local climate crime reduction officer. -- crime

:10:04.:10:09.

reduction officer. Coming up - freewheeling.

:10:10.:10:19.
:10:20.:10:22.

We celebrate the life of a And Bradford, a unique relationship

:10:22.:10:26.

has developed between the Muslim community and of white working-

:10:26.:10:31.

class builder who is responsible for burying their dead. Graham is

:10:31.:10:36.

on call 24 hours a day should he be needed, and over the last 20 years,

:10:36.:10:40.

has cemented his position as a key member of the community. We have

:10:40.:10:50.
:10:50.:10:50.

Grief is universal. There are few places where that is more evident

:10:50.:10:58.

than this Bradford cemetery. Opened in 1860, this was Bradford's first

:10:58.:11:06.

municipal cemetery. Now, Scholemoor is open to thousands of graves,

:11:06.:11:11.

Christian, Jew and, for the latter part of the century, -- a last

:11:11.:11:19.

It's rare to be invited to glimpse the rituals of other cultures and

:11:19.:11:22.

watching from the sidelines as these Shia Muslims lay a loved one

:11:22.:11:28.

to rest, I'm struck by many things. Can you stand out of the way,

:11:28.:11:31.

please? But none are more surprising to me than the man at

:11:31.:11:37.

the centre of proceedings. I didn't go to school to be a gravedigger.

:11:37.:11:43.

It happened about 17 years ago, I was asked to help out and won a

:11:43.:11:50.

grave tending to around two a month, -- turned into. Then, I'm for all

:11:50.:11:58.

six. This year has been 98. -- four. The day starts early. No-one wants

:11:58.:12:01.

to see the mechanics of grave digging and this section of the

:12:01.:12:03.

cemetery will have many visitors before morning has fully

:12:03.:12:06.

established its hazy light. I had assumed Graham's job was simply

:12:06.:12:11.

digging a hole, but in fact the job is more about building than digging.

:12:11.:12:16.

For a Muslim burial, they believe that the body sits up. Not

:12:16.:12:21.

physically, spiritually. That it sits up. Different people believe

:12:21.:12:30.

different things. So what we do here is put it three blocks high,

:12:30.:12:34.

so that when the body goes into the grave, the angel of death can come

:12:34.:12:40.

along. We very people 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a

:12:40.:12:46.

year. So no holidays for you? holidays for me.

:12:46.:12:49.

One faith with two sects, but there are many different communities in

:12:49.:12:51.

Bradford, each with different requirements - and Graham has

:12:51.:12:57.

learnt them all. There is a lot of job satisfaction in this. You are

:12:57.:13:03.

helping a family in need, are due, really? -- are due. And the family

:13:03.:13:07.

really do appreciate what you are doing. Bad weather families start

:13:07.:13:12.

coming, you get to know the family and they tell you about the person

:13:12.:13:15.

-- and when the families start to come. You don't know what they are

:13:16.:13:19.

like when you bury them, but a few days later you find out all about

:13:19.:13:21.

them. What started as an economic

:13:21.:13:23.

decision became a cultural and emotional journey that has

:13:23.:13:33.

surprised him as much as the people who depend on him.

:13:33.:13:35.

People like Ghulam Rasool, who oversees burials in this section of

:13:35.:13:44.

Scholemoor. He will listen to you and he will help you the best way

:13:44.:13:52.

that he can do. The Asian people, whoever is involved in the

:13:52.:13:58.

Secretary, they just love him. Most people will ring him even before

:13:58.:14:08.
:14:08.:14:11.

they ring the funeral director. "Graham, so-and-so has died". He

:14:11.:14:15.

knows and he will try and help people. Graham, obviously, is not

:14:15.:14:20.

Muslim. No. Did you ever have a problem with people saying we don't

:14:20.:14:29.

like...? I think it 15 years, three or four people made that comment.

:14:29.:14:35.

He is not a Muslim, is he? No, he is not. Countrified a Muslim?

:14:35.:14:40.

Probably can, but I like him the way he has -- can't you find.

:14:40.:14:46.

Even outside the cemetery, Graham's popularity is inescapable. His main

:14:46.:14:50.

trade as a builder has come in handy for little jobs like mosque

:14:50.:14:54.

extensions. Today he's digging out the entire floor of an old Bradford

:14:54.:14:57.

nightclub, which will eventually become a new madrassa for young

:14:57.:15:01.

Asian women. Everywhere he goes, someone wants something. Which is

:15:01.:15:05.

why for one hour a day, he heads to the other side of the city for

:15:05.:15:12.

lunch. Been there is a breakaway. I need a break for about an hour away

:15:12.:15:17.

-- been areas. Sometimes I have been with people who are quite

:15:17.:15:22.

emotional and it is not the most pleasant of jobs sometimes,

:15:22.:15:26.

especially in winter. You need to sometimes get away from it.

:15:26.:15:33.

ever want to say no when the phone rings? When it is snowing, and you

:15:33.:15:38.

are in the cemetery at 8pm, you do think a little bit like that. But

:15:38.:15:42.

no, I just go home and have a bath and start again.

:15:42.:15:46.

Today is quiet - no burials. Instead of taking the day off,

:15:46.:15:49.

Graham's moved to a different part of the cemetery - where he's

:15:49.:15:53.

working for free. This terribly sad corner of

:15:53.:15:56.

Scholemoor is the snow drop garden - a memorial for the tiniest of

:15:56.:16:03.

babies. As you can see, it's a work in progress driven by Graham, who

:16:03.:16:09.

has first-hand understanding of this kind of grief. We had a child

:16:09.:16:14.

that have died, so I do understand the feelings of the parents in the

:16:14.:16:22.

cemetery. It is part of a grieving process that a lot of people have

:16:23.:16:26.

to go through and it is a difficult time for a lot of people.

:16:26.:16:32.

His efforts haven't gone unnoticed by the families affected. It wasn't

:16:32.:16:37.

a nice place to go, it was a place where we knew we had to go and take

:16:37.:16:44.

things, to honour our babies, but now to see it and go and the work

:16:44.:16:48.

that had -- Graham has done, it is almost a pleasure to go and sit

:16:48.:16:52.

there and while away a bit of time and talk to them. A I am not the

:16:52.:16:57.

only one who has been doing it, a lot of people have contributed. The

:16:57.:17:00.

parents have contributed, the council has contributed.

:17:00.:17:04.

Always on call. Even while I'm talking to him, he's summoned back

:17:04.:17:07.

to work. From death to burial is swift in the Muslim world, with

:17:07.:17:13.

everything being completed within 24 hours.

:17:13.:17:16.

In what seems like the blink of an eye, the cemetery is suddenly full

:17:16.:17:20.

of men. Women are not permitted at the graveside. To the untrained eye,

:17:21.:17:28.

it seems chaotic. Listen, slowed down. Below are the

:17:28.:17:34.

tapes down. Mourners swarm around the open casket. Slowdown,

:17:34.:17:39.

everybody. A slowdown. A son weeps and prayers are said.

:17:39.:17:43.

The void Graham spoke of earlier is covered with blocks and earth - or

:17:43.:17:53.
:17:53.:17:53.

mitty - is thrown in as a final act. Two angels coming, when they

:17:53.:17:58.

questioned to you, you should be giving them the answer. Afterwards,

:17:58.:18:04.

we pray for him, to Almighty our, please forgive his sins. Anything

:18:04.:18:11.

he did good, please make more good things.

:18:11.:18:14.

Then as quickly as the crowd arrived, they are gone, leaving the

:18:14.:18:21.

Imam alone for final prayers. organised chaos. Well organised

:18:21.:18:27.

chaos. Sometimes it does get a little bit emotional and people are

:18:27.:18:32.

a little bit upset. People want to be as close as they can.

:18:32.:18:36.

Chaotic, constant, cold. Graham's is an unusual life. On the quiet,

:18:36.:18:39.

over 20 years, he's broken down as many cultural walls as he's built

:18:39.:18:47.

from brick and stone. It is nice that people do actually respect you.

:18:47.:18:57.
:18:57.:18:59.

Everywhere I go, I get "Hello, Graham". I get extra per chorus,

:18:59.:19:09.
:19:09.:19:12.

extra samosas, or people knock 50p In all the history of Yorkshire's

:19:12.:19:16.

Sport men and women, few people compared to Beryl Burton. She is

:19:16.:19:19.

considered to be one of the greatest cyclists who ever lived

:19:19.:19:24.

and she made the Morley Cycle Club famous around the world. And yet

:19:24.:19:28.

few people would even recognise that name. Now the cycling

:19:28.:19:31.

journalist Phil Liggett believes it is about time she was given the

:19:31.:19:40.

recognition that she deserves. It's a stirring site for sure - the

:19:40.:19:43.

cream of the Great Britain cycling team speeding round the Velodrome

:19:43.:19:51.

in Manchester as they prepare for glory at this summer's Olympics.

:19:51.:19:55.

But you know, however Clyde -- higher they climb in the medal

:19:55.:19:58.

table, there is one cyclist in whose shadow they will struggle to

:19:58.:20:01.

escape. A Yorkshirewoman who dominated the sport for more than a

:20:01.:20:06.

quarter of a century, but now whose exploits have largely been

:20:06.:20:08.

forgotten. From the 1950s to the 1970s, Beryl

:20:08.:20:15.

Burton reigned supreme. Beryl Burton set a scorching place. It

Best British All-Rounder 25 years in a row, seven times world

:20:32.:20:34.

champion. MBE. Promoted to OBE. was well ahead of her time. She

:20:34.:20:37.

could win malty championship on the road and on the track which has

:20:37.:20:41.

only just been replicated by Mark Cavandish. I don't think any other

:20:41.:20:44.

Brit has done that. And despite reaching the pinnacle

:20:44.:20:48.

of her sport, none of it ever went to her head. I did feel personally

:20:48.:20:52.

that I have got something that they haven't, because I don't feel I

:20:52.:20:56.

have anything special about me. I just have two legs, two arms, a

:20:56.:21:00.

body and a heart and lungs. For Beryl's relatives, her will to

:21:00.:21:05.

win dominated family life. Washing she could immediately?

:21:05.:21:11.

quite. A -- was she good. The first year, we actually pushed her around

:21:11.:21:15.

and the second year, she rode out the side of us. And the third year,

:21:15.:21:21.

we saw the back wheel. Because she just rode away. She did like to be

:21:21.:21:25.

the best in everything. everything, yes. She put her role

:21:25.:21:31.

effort into being the best -- her whole effort. She didn't expect it

:21:31.:21:34.

could be easy. She really tried, whether it was cleaning the house

:21:34.:21:39.

or racing bike, everything was a challenge. A game, really.

:21:39.:21:42.

Growing up as a sickly child, Beryl was determined her fitness was

:21:42.:21:48.

never again in question. She would go out and do 100 miles, no messing.

:21:48.:21:51.

That was her fault of trading. I don't think many women could do it

:21:51.:21:57.

and that was what made her great -- that was her form of a training.

:21:57.:22:00.

For Charlie, who gave up his own cycling career to coach Beryl,

:22:00.:22:03.

success brought its own reward. was nice to know that the person

:22:03.:22:08.

you felt so much about what actually winning. I was lucky

:22:08.:22:11.

enough to know Beryl and in all my years as a cyclist and a journalist

:22:11.:22:17.

I never met anyone quite like her. Although it was 40 years ago, one

:22:17.:22:22.

memory that will never leave me is when I dance with Beryl and -- at

:22:22.:22:25.

the Sports Writers' Association dinner. She nearly threw me off the

:22:25.:22:29.

floor. She was simply that strong. Her strength came through sheer

:22:29.:22:33.

hard graft. As an amateur, she couldn't afford to race full-time

:22:33.:22:36.

and had to balance her cycling career with a series of physical

:22:36.:22:44.

jobs on local farms. When you go training, I feel I am working my

:22:44.:22:48.

body to 90%. The other 10% has to come when you're racing. You cannot

:22:48.:22:52.

train your body 100% all the time or you would burn yourself into the

:23:24.:23:27.

seen as recreation not a sport, she was always facing an uphill

struggle. Why did she never become an icon

:23:31.:23:35.

after all of her achievements? think it was because of the

:23:35.:23:38.

standing of cycle sports in the eyes of the general public at the

:23:38.:23:43.

time. Now we know it is massive. At that time, a bit of a Cinderella

sport. Her performances were big, the sport wasn't.

:23:46.:23:49.

But while cycling had a small following in Britain, in the rest

:23:49.:23:54.

of Europe it was huge. And Beryl was its star.

:23:54.:23:57.

Perhaps her crowning achievement was a double World Championship in

:23:57.:24:01.

East Germany in 1960. Today, Charlie and Denise are about to be

This is amazing. This is the pursuit world final. She sticks to

That Stadium is packed. 60,000. There is not a spare seat. Just

amazing. After the championships in Germany, it was back to work with a

:24:52.:24:56.

bump. There was barely a ripple of interest in her fantastic

:24:56.:25:00.

achievement. I think she summed it up in her autobiography when she

:25:00.:25:04.

said, "I was a double world champion in an international sport

:25:04.:25:07.

and it might as well have been the ladies' darts final than at the

local as far as Britain was concerned". In France or Germany,

:25:11.:25:15.

she would have probably been paraded in an open-top bus. You

:25:15.:25:18.

certainly get the feeling she had a point.

:25:18.:25:21.

And it's a complaint she might still have today. Even in her

adopted home town of Morley, who's cycle club she made famous around

:25:25.:25:29.

the world, she's hardly a household name. Beryl Burton? Actress. Never

:25:30.:25:37.

heard of her. Beryl Burton? No idea. Something to do with cycling? I am

:25:37.:25:41.

not quite sure, it was years ago. But among the Morley Club veterans

:25:41.:25:43.

and colleagues from National Cycling Championship team who raced

:25:43.:25:51.

with and against Beryl, there's still a huge wealth of affection.

:25:51.:25:57.

You represented her team mate for a first time -- for her time in the

sixties, and then you came along and that is Beryl's bike you have

same size. Does it go as fast as when Beryl Roddik? No. -- Rd it.

:26:12.:26:15.

To her team-mates, she was both an inspiration and a friend. She was

:26:15.:26:18.

demanding a certain way that she was very kind and easy to get on

:26:18.:26:23.

with. You did your best and that was all she asked Dobbie. I can

:26:27.:26:32.

no, everyone is feeling as bad and we can win this, because she

encouraged you to do that. Beryl died as she had lived -

suddenly, and in Yorkshire while riding her bike.

:26:38.:26:42.

And the cycling world flocked to honour one of its favourite stars.

:26:42.:26:47.

She really did, with her team mate, make them more his cycle club the

:26:54.:26:59.

we had donations from all over the world. East Germany, Australia,

:26:59.:27:06.

America, Canada. She was probably better known on the Continent that

:27:06.:27:09.

she was in this country. Today, a memorial cabinet here at

:27:09.:27:12.

the National Cycling Centre in Manchester contains most of her

:27:12.:27:19.

cherished trophies. Pride of place in the centre of the Cabinet is the

:27:19.:27:23.

rainbow jersey. Only a world champion can wear it. In Beryl's

:27:23.:27:29.

day, it was virtually unknown in Britain and she won the 7th. Under

:27:32.:27:36.

should come and look at and aspire to, the rainbow jersey.

:27:36.:27:39.

But during her glittering career, one coveted prize eluded her. Beryl

:27:39.:27:42.

missed out on Olympic gold simply because she was a woman - ladies

:27:42.:27:45.

cycling events weren't included until 1984. And she'd be relishing

:27:45.:27:52.

the prospect of lining up in London. Do you think she would have won an

:27:52.:27:57.

Olympic medal? Without a doubt. If we could design a course for Beryl,

:27:57.:28:01.

she would be a Olympic Women's time-trial champion in London.
