Hagg Lane Allotments Break Ins /Thefts/Damage (Thursday evening 15th December 2011)

Last night we have had around 20 plots broken into and items stolen. Padlocks were cut and smashed from both gates and sheds.

We have again been advised to let as many people as possible know who have suffered individual theft/damage to contact the Police (telephone 101) so they can quickly link all the reports together. No one else can report on a plot holder’s behalf and it is very important that everyone affected contacts them and gains a crime reference number to help build the full picture of the above incidents.
