Meat worth £600 was stolen from a Pilling hotel.

Turkey crowns, lamb, duck fillets, pork, bacon, gammon and geese were taken from an outbuilding at the Springfield House Hotel on Wheel Lane.

The hungry thieves also helped themselves to cheese and a crate of lager between 3pm and 9pm on December 23.

Police said the outbuilding was insecure and located within the grounds of the hotel.

The meat was taken from a large storage freezer inside.

PC Robert Tugman, of Lancashire Police, said: “If anyone noticed any suspicious activity in the area then we would urge them to contact police. It is likely the offenders could have tried to sell on the meat in the street, in pubs or possibly from the back of a vehicle.

“Members of the public being offered such items for sale are urged to contact police on 101 with as much information as possible.”
