Police have made four arrests following two burglaries in Highbridge during the early hours of Monday morning (February 21st).

The town's Morland Social Club and Churchfield School were broken into by a group of men shortly after 2am.

Officers were called to the area and took four men, aged 22, 25, 27 and 29, into custody.
