SPECIALIST plumbing fittings have been stolen in Minehead.

Avon and Somerset Police is appealing after the fittings were stolen in an overnight burglary.

The incident happened between February 10-11 in Minehead and involved a large quantity of specialist plumbing fittings for biomass boilers being taken.

The burglary happened between 6.30pm on 10 February and 7.30am the following morning.

A spokesperson said: "Entry was forced into the property and it is believed because of the size and volume of articles taken, the intruders used a lorry to transport the items taken.

"We would appeal to anyone who was in the Mart Road/Stephenson Road area of the town - near to Minehead Sawmills - to contact us if they saw a large lorry with the occupants acting suspiciously.

"Anyone with information or mobile or dashcam footage is asked to contact us, quoting reference 5220034184."
