    Thumb turn locks are less secure than key-only locks.

    Thumb turn locks allow easier egress in event of fire (no need for hunt the key). But are easy for the young and risk-unaware to escape via.

    One benefit is that you can lock from inside and guarantee someone with a key can still open from outside.

    Here's one example of the lock you seem to want https://www.easylocks.co.uk/walsall-british-standard-euro-thumbturn-mortice-sashlock+finish=Satin~Chrome+mortice_sashlocks_cas e_width=76mm

    The euro-locks it uses can be had in quite high security levels in various sizes and thumb turn.

    The door will need some modification to the lock hole size probably. Plus new keys.

    You need to search for "Euro Sash Lock Handles Brass", and then search for a separate Euro Lock cylinder.
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    The Screwfix euro locks suggested are very low security ones. Avoid!
    A bit more money will get better quality locks.

    Check if better, more secure handles can be obtained at reasonable price too.

    Then you need to ensure burglars can't access the thumb turn via the letterbox. This 3* one need to be pushed in to turn it https://uapcorporate.com/product/kinetica-child-safe-thumb-turn-3-star-kitemarked-euro-cylinder/

    May be worth consulting a reliable local locksmith's shop for advice?
