There used to be a sliding bolt, this was quite difficult to line up. Installed a sash window lock for under £4 :

Brighton Sash Fastener Polished Chrome 58 x 22mm | Screwfix.com

Countersunk two screws to hide the old screw holes.

That's an okay cheapskate repair job, but a freaking good picture!
