Police are appealing for information after approximately £12,000 worth of property was stolen during a burglary in Minstead.

The incident occurred overnight between Wednesday July 14 and Thursday July 15 at the Minstead study centre near Lyndhurst.
Offenders have forced entry into two sheds within the site and stolen a small tractor, two lawn mowers, a chain saw and a leaf blower.
Police Sergeant Louise Hubble, from the Hampshire Constabulary Country Watch team, said: “I would like to hear from anyone with information about this incident or about the whereabouts of the stolen items.
“It is likely that the offenders would have needed a 4x4 or larger vehicle to remove the stolen property from the site.
“Therefore if you have seen a suspicious vehicle or have witnessed other suspicious activity in the vicinity of the study centre over the past week this may be relevant to our investigation and I would like to hear from you.”
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact PS Louise Hubble on 101. Alternatively you can call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
