£20,000 worth of laptops have been taken from two schools in Suffolk.

Great Barton Primary and Kersey Primary School have both been broken into over the Easter holidays.

Police are linking the two thefts.

Detective Inspector Nick Power said, "We are appealing for anyone with information in relation to these offences to come forward.  We have seen a number of these incidents occurring across the county in recent months, but particularly in the West, and there are people out there who know who is responsible.

"If you have been offered computing equipment in recent months and you are not sure where it came from, or if you know of anyone who may be connected to these crimes, we would urge you to come forward.

"We are continuing to work with schools in the county to encourage them to do all they can to ensure the security of their buildings and equipment, and would ask that any school with concerns contacts their local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101."

Anyone with information in relation to these offences is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101.
