Police Appeal Following Burglary In Newport
Police in Telford are investigating following a burglary in Newport. The incident occurred at an address on Shepherds Court on Monday 11 June.
Sometime between 6.15pm and 9.30pm, it appears that thieves broke into a shed at the rear of the property and stole a number of tools from inside.
