Cigs stolen

ALMOST £1,000 of cigarettes have been stolen during a service station delivery.

Thieves took the boxes from the back of a lorry as the driver was delivering goods to Stannington Service Station in Station Road on Tuesday between 10.15am and 10.20am.

They are thought to have been driving a silver Volkswagen and had followed the lorry driver into the garage, before making off with their haul while he was inside.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 03456 043043, ext 69191.
