Burglars cut their way into a Haverhill retail warehouse and made off with high powered tools.

Three men used cutting equipment to break their way into Screwfix in Hollands Road at about 11pm on Tuesday.

The gang then stole a number of high powered tools.

A Screwfix store in Newmarket was also targeted by thieves on the same night, shortly after 10pm. Police said they believed two men had been involved in the Newmarket theft.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour, has knowledge of these two burglaries, or have been recently offered new power tools at a highly discounted rate should contact either Haverhill police quoting crime reference 47/49463/18 or Newmarket police quoting crime reference 37/49436/18, or alternatively contact the independent charity Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their anonymous online form."
