Police appeal for witnesses.


Police are appealing for information after two burglaries in the west of the county that are being linked.

The first incident happened at a house in Depden.

Police arrived within seconds of the burglars leaving.

A search of the house had been made and an iMac computer was stolen.

The second incident happened at a property in Dunstall Green Road, Ousden between 9.15am and 4.15pm on Tuesday, April 8.

The property was broken into and an untidy search was carried out.

Jewellery and money was stolen.
