A retailer in Chippenham is counting the cost of a recent break in after thieves broke into the store during the night of Sunday 7 August.

The B&Q store on Bath Road was targeted after miscreants cut through fencing at the rear of the store to gain access.

Once inside, police believe a group of between two and four men made several trips from the store to their getaway vehicle, a white van.

Six cement mixers, garden furniture and a pallet of electric lawn rakes have all been reported as stolen.

A spokesperson for the business commented: “This incident is being investigated by police and we are reviewing security measures at our Chippenham store.

Anyone with information should call 101.
