WITNESSES are being sought to a burglary at Elm when a house being renovated was ransacked and large quantities of tools and materials stolen.

It happened between January 11 and January 21 at a house on Outwell Road.

Items stolen include paint, boxes of laminated flooring, 40 lengths of copper tubing, a concrete mixer, various DVDs and CDs, a hi-fi stereo, four drills, four saws, a spirit level, ladder, disc cutter, wheelbarrow and a freezer.

The thieves got in either through the rear patio doors or a side window in the garage.

Dc Lucie Spriggs said: "This property is currently under renovation and it is possible passers-by may have thought such vehicles were carrying out their work.
