Appeal for witnesses after fuel theft at Burnham-On-Sea petrol station

Burnham-On-Sea police have appealed for witnesses after a van driver stole almost £60 of fuel during a drive-off theft at a petrol station in the town earlier this week.

The motorist sped off from the Esso station in Oxford Street without paying for the fuel on Monday morning (January 30th).

"We are interested to hear from anyone who saw a white Ford Escort van, whose registration plates had been shielded to avoid detection," Inspector Roger Tolley told

The incident - known as bilking - occurred at the height of Monday morning's rush hour between 8.30am and 9am.

Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or dial the police's non-emergency number of 101.
