A BUSINESS that was hit by burglars has put up a £1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits.

It comes after thieves broke into a fencing, timber and garden supplies business in Mark, Highbridge.

Hand tools and cordless equipment from the joinery workshop, garden equipment, gates and other items were stolen, during the raid at Somerlap, in Wells Road.

Police believe a van would have been needed to remove the stolen property.

Officers want to hear from anyone who may have spotted a suspicious vehicle in the area during the theft, overnight on Thursday, April 1, into the following day.

Police have also issued a CCTV image of three people they wish to identify.

A force spokesperson said: "While their faces are covered people may recognise them by the clothing.

"If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5221070433."
