Residents are being urged to be vigilant following a spate of shed and garage burglaries.

A total of 13 outbuildings have been broken into over the past few days in Linton, Longstanton and Fen Drayton - with thieves targeting sports equipment and tools.

In one incident, a stone statue of a golfer was taken from a garden in Station Road, Longstanton.

Detective Inspector Mark Smith said: “I would urge people to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. We are increasing patrols in the area but would appeal to anyone with information about the break-ins, or have been offered the items for sale, to call police.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
