Items believed to have been stolen from St Peter's Church in Palgrave near Diss were in fact moved to a 'safe place'
Foodbank items which were said to have been stolen from a Suffolk church had been stored in a safe place and not stolen, police have revealed.
Police launched a witness appeal earlier today after it was reported that items which were set to be donated to foodbanks had been stolen from St Peter's Church in Palgrave, near Diss.
Officers initially believed that a burglar had entered the church, on The Green, between 3pm and 9pm on Sunday.
But a volunteer today told police that the items, which had been collected for the community's harvest festival, had been put in a 'safe place'.
Other members of the team had not been informed and had believed the items to have been stolen.
