Garden centre hit twice in 24 hours by thieves

Manor Garden Centre and Tree Services in Leasowe on Merseyside has been burgled twice within 24 hours.

Owner Steve Mole said thieves stole four chainsaws (made by Stihl and etched with MTS), a stone cutter, leaf blower and a seven-and-a-half tonne tipper truck.

The first break-in happened between 9.40pm and 11.10pm on 7 January.

Thieves returned the following night (Sunday) between 7.30pm to 9.40pm, and robbed the Ford Iveco Eurocargo truck, registration V493DNB.

Mole said thieves had broken locked steel gates with the truck.
