Dereham Cricket Club has suffered a fresh spate of break-ins - and intruders have even made used of its kitchen.

The Norwich Road ground has been targeted five times in the past month, coming on top of vandalism in recent years.

Chairman Adie Hewitt said: "The club has very limited funds and it is frustrating that we are having to waste money on this.

"We have a lot of young players and we are focused on providing a good club for them and helping them develop, so it is very disheartening for this to keep happening."

The club removed all stock from the premises over the winter, but criminals have continued to break into the pavilion and have been known to use the kitchen to cook food.
