More than £1,000 worth of tools were stolen following a break-in in Wisbech.

A property in Harecroft Road was broken into between 5pm on Tuesday, October 21 and 9am on Wednesday, October 22.

It is believed entry was gained via a small, ground floor window to the rear of the property and tools and builders equipment worth about £1,300 were taken.

One item was a silver ‘Makita’ compound mitre saw which has a four inch long plastic handle missing from the back of the saw. It also has numerous pen marks across the gauge which are unique to the saw.

Other items include a set of combi aluminium ladders, a black and grey Magner tool pouch containing a variety of tools such as tool cutters and screwdrivers, a large black waterproof style bag with a small red logo containing various tools and a black Titan hammer drill.
