In the early hours of Tuesday, November 29, between 3..45am and 4.20am, offenders stole about 100 trees from Silver Springs Garden Centre.

Police say they're keeping an open mind as to whether the same thieves are behind both.

“Both these garden centres in a rural location, but are on Fontley Road and Titchfield Lane which is a well-used route between Wickham and Titchfield.
