Part of the garden centre car park was cordoned off for several hours while officers conducted an investigation and they revealed on Saturday afternoon that the matter is no longer being treated as an accident.

They have said they are now treating the matter as an attempted burglary.

However, a spokesman for the police said there is no evidence of any items being stolen by the suspects.
