POLICE have appealed for information following a break in at The Island Store, Holy Island.

Between 5.30pm on Sunday and the early hours of Monday, the store was broken into and items worth £864 stolen.

The thieves searched the premises and made off with a laptop, three pewter pocket watches inscribed with the words Holy Island, two similarly engraved pewter hip flasks and nine bottles of wine.

Police believe the offenders may have stayed on the island as the theft was carried out when the tide was in, closing the causeway.

Anyone with information, or who may have been offered any of the items for sale, should contact Berwick police station on 03456 043043.
