Sensory toys for children with autism, worth about £2,000, have been stolen from a Worthing charity.

Thieves broke into sheds belonging to the Northbrook Project on Romany Road in Durrington sometime between 6 and 15 April, Sussex Police said.

The charity had spent the last two years fundraising to buy the specialist toys, police added.

Plasma spheres, bubble lights and bubble machines were among the many toys stolen.

PC Mark Gregory said the project was "invaluable to children and their parents".

He said: "The sessions where the toys are used have only been running for the last few months and now someone has ruined it by stealing them."

About £400 of damage was done to the charity's property during the break in, police added.
