£5k worth of tools and equipment were stolen overnight from a van in Hailsham.

Here is Lucy Salvage: “My dad’s van was broken into last night (early hours of this morning) – Anglesey Avenue area. Gutted for him as he’s worked his balls off for his family the last 50 years and doesn’t deserve this.

£5,000 worth of tools and equipment stolen including hedge cutters, ropes and harnesses which in particular won’t be of any use to a lot of people

If you or anyone you know is approached by anyone with this kind of equipment for sale, please report to Sussex police on 101.”
