Thieves take North Tyneside church donation cash

Police have appealed for information following the theft of cash from a North Tyneside church.

The donations box in the main hall of St George's Church in Cullercoats was forced open, and the contents removed.

The theft, which police described as opportunistic, happened between 1030 and 1630 GMT on Sunday.

A Northumbria Police spokesman added that the donation box was used to help those in need and the incident was very upsetting for the congregation.
