Caernarfon wood thefts prompt UV marker pen warning

Builders' merchants in Gwynedd have been advised to mark wood with a UV pen following a recent spate of thefts.

North Wales Police said there has been a rise in wood thefts from timber yards in the Caernarfon area, and a large amount of property has been recovered.

Police Community Support Officer Richard Pepper said the force would be "linking with local businesses to ensure they mark their property".

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
