POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a raid on a shed in Stourport today (Saturday, September 22).

Thieves struck at Longboat Lane between 1am and 8am this morning.

It is believed they gained access by damaging two heavy duty padlocks before stealing a green petrol strimmer worth around £175.

The offenders are also thought to have tried to break into three other sheds in the same street but police say nothing has been reported stolen from these so far.

Anyone with information is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 0182S 220918
