Cash and toys were stolen when thieves smashed their way into Wellington Pier in Great Yarmouth.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the Marine Parade pier was targeted on December 1, December 21 and again on Christmas Day.

The first burglary happened on Sunday, December 1 between 11.40pm and 11.55pm when the culprits smashed a window and once inside stole a quantity of cash.

The second took place on Saturday, December 21 at about 12.10am when the amusements were targeted. A window was again smashed and cash along with three Henry Hoover soft toys were taken.

A third incident took place on Wednesday, December 25 at about 7.50pm when two unknown males were disturbed by a security guard after a window on the pier was broken. As soon as they were seen they fled the scene.

Investigating police would like to speak to an unknown male who was walking his dog in front of the pier just after the third incident took place and spoke with the security guard. Officers believe the dog-walker might have seen the offenders leaving the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the incidents, saw suspicious activity or has information is asked to call PC Katie Swann at Great Yarmouth police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
