Thieves raid 35 sheds at Dorset allotments

Thieves have targeted 35 sheds at allotments in Dorset during one night.

The sheds, on allotments at Herringston Road in Dorchester, were broken into between 2100 BST on Wednesday and 0900 BST on Thursday.

Items stolen include a rotavator, a lawn mower and a strimmer, before the thieves drove away in a vehicle.

Police, who are appealing for witnesses, believe the burglars would have made a lot of noise as they broke into and searched each shed.
