Nursing homes in Burnham-On-Sea area hit by burglaries

Police have confirmed they are investigating two burglaries, which are believed to be connected, at nursing homes in Burnham-On-Sea and Brent Knoll.

The incidents occurred in the early hours of Monday morning at BUPA's Nursing and Reisdential Centre in Oxford Street, pictured, and at a second nursing home in Brent Knoll.

Police spokesman Wayne Baker confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The first incident occurred at about 3.30am on Monday morning (May 11th) when a property in Oxford Street was broken into and a safe taken, which was later recovered."

"A second incident - believed to involve the same suspects - took place later at about 4.30am when a property in Brent Street in Brent Knoll was broken into and a handbag taken, which was also later recovered."

Police believe both incidents are connected and are appealing for anyone who may have been in either Oxford Street or Brent Street at the time of the incidents, who may have seen two people acting suspiciously, to contact them.
