Police are appealing for information after a village store was targeted by would-be burglars.

Just before midnight on Wednesday, July 10, two men attempted to break into the Londis Supermarket on Manor Road, Slyne.

However, thanks to the vigilance of local residents they were disturbed and fled the scene.

DC Trevor Walker said: “It may be that these men are deliberately targeting local convenience stores and newsagents so I would urge people to be aware and report any suspicious activity to the police as soon as possible.”

The two men are described as 6’0 and 5’8 wearing dark hooded tops.

They were driving a black estate vehicle with a noisy or rattling exhaust.

DC Walker continued: “If anybody believes they may have seen this vehicle or if anyone has any other information that they think may be of assistance, please get in touch.

“It is important to find out who the men are and what vehicle they are using as soon as we can to prevent any further crimes taking place.”

Information can be passed to police on 101 or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at
