Chainsaws, strimmers and leaf blower stolen from Wrights Mower Centre

Thieves broke into Wrights Mower Centre, in Royston, Hertfordshire, last week and made off with Stihl chainsaws, strimmers and a leaf blower.

Det Sgt Andy Denzey from Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: "The offenders used a large, white transit van with a sloping roof at the top. The van had no livery on it.

"Three men were involved. I would like to hear from anyone who has any information regarding this offence.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered Stihl gardening equipment in the past few days which may be connected to this burglary."
