A string of cars in a Norfolk market town have been broken into during overnight raids. 

Reports were made in Reepham on Monday morning of residents having awoken to find their cars "ransacked" with items such as handbags and purses stolen from their vehicles. 

There have since been multiple reports of similar happenings across the market town, with doors left ajar and vehicles seeming as though they had been 'gone through'.

The reported incidents happened across Reepham, mainly in driveways and in front of houses.

Norfolk Police have been contacted for comment.
