POLICE are appealing for information after two parking posts were stolen from a Morpeth street.

Overnight between Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19, thieves stole the items, which prevent other vehicles from going into a private parking space, from the drives of houses in Willow Close.

On both occasions, the base of the post was unscrewed to enable the offenders to make off with the metal bollards.

Anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area, or has information about the offences, should contact Morpeth police on 03456 043043 – extension 69191 – or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
