BURGLARS targeted Countrywide Stores in Ledbury and made off with power tools, in an overnight or early morning raid.

West Mercia Police say the break-in was reported to them at 7.51am on Saturday, July 5, and items taken included brush cutters, pressure washers and hedge cutters, to an unspecified value.

The store was contacted by the Reporter, but declined to comment.

Police declined to give details of how the thieves gained access.

But West Mercia Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward, and anyone with information should call 101 quoting incident number 170S.
