�8k of damage at Fenland Leisure Centre after thieves break in
BURGLARS caused around �8,000 of damage after they broke into the Hudson Leisure Centre this morning.
A vehicle was used to pull the door frames out of the main entrance to the building in Wisbech and then drag a large safe out of the duty manager’s office.
It is thought a Land Rover, or a 4x4 vehicle, was used along with ropes and chains to pull the doors and a crowbar and sledgehammer was found at the scene.
Significant damage was done to the front of the building and the reception area, resulting in the centre having to be closed for a few hours.
No members at staff were put at risk or significant amounts of money stolen.
