Police appeal after post box stolen in Haddington

Police are appealing for witnesses following the theft of a post box in East Lothian.

The small "box-style unit" on a pole was stolen from Letham Mains in Haddington between 15:30 on Wednesday and 15:45 on Thursday.

The post box had the number 306 stamped on the front and is valued at about £2,000.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about the theft to come forward.

Const Heidi Hopkins, from Haddington Police Station, said: "Given the time of year the box was likely to be used more frequently in the coming weeks with people sending Christmas cards to friends and family.

"We would ask anyone who saw anything suspicious in the Letham Mains area, or who can help us identify the culprits, to contact police immediately."
