POLICE are appealing for information after a burglary at a Heddon on the Wall building site.

Between 4.30pm on Tuesday, March 29, and 8am on Wednesday, March 30, thieves broke into a storage container and stole a Makita radio from a fork-lift truck at the site on Iron Sign Road.

East Tynedale Neighbourhood Inspector Kevin Oates said: “This is a reminder for those in rural areas to ensure tools and valuables are stored securely overnight.

“Where possible, those running building or construction sites should install audible alarms and extra lighting to alert people and police patrols that intruders may be on a site.”

Anyone with any information into the burglary is asked to contact Northumbria Police on 03456 043043, ext 69191, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
