FOUR people have been arrested for conspiracy to burgle a disused hospital in Morpeth.

At 5.55pm on Monday, March 21, police officers carrying out patrols in the town as part of Operation Coin saw two men acting suspiciously near to the St George’s Hospital building in Cottingwood Lane.

They investigated and arrested the two men, aged 46 and 40, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary.

A 27-year-old man and 25-year-old woman, also believed to have been involved in the incident, drove away from the scene, but were later arrested in the Cramlington area.

The four people have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
