Laptop and camera stolen in break-in at Burnham-On-Sea school

Mean thieves stole a laptop computer and a digital camera from a school in Burnham-On-Sea last weekend.

Police have this week issued an appeal for information following the break-in at St Joseph's School.

Sgt Ian Kennett of Burnham Police told "I would ask for anyone who lives near to local schools to keep their eyes open and report anything suspicious."

"It is a shame for young people to have their school equipment stolen. I would like to seek the support of the community to stop this from happening again."

Officers have carried out house to house inquiries and are working with local schools to increase security. They would like anyone who is offered a black Toshiba laptop to let them know so they can check the security number.

Anyone with information can contact Burnham police on 0845 456 7000 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
