A burglary to a local rugby club this week has sparked an appeal from the police.

Between approximately 2:25am and 3am on Monday (26th) three people entered the clubhouse and changing rooms at Puddletown RFC in Piddlehinton.

A quantity of cash was stolen, as well as a bottle of alcohol.

Damage was caused to the buildings and a pipe was removed, which caused flooding.

Police Constable Mia-Isabella Bowditch, of Dorset Police, said: "This burglary has had a significant impact on a local business and we are doing all we can to identify those responsible.

"I am appealing to anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity around the relevant time to please come forward.

"I would also like to speak to anyone who may have any CCTV footage to help our enquiries."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police online or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55220157224. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
