A mum-of-three has released CCTV footage appearing to show a burglary outside of her home.

Between 11pm and 5.45am on Sunday, July 23, a set of locked garages were broken into on New Road in Fritton, near Great Yarmouth, with around £4,000 of power tools and electrical equipment stolen.

Now, CCTV footage released by 26-year-old Kendall Brown, appears to show the burglary being carried out.

The stolen goods belonged to her husband Jason, who relied on them to run his own groundworks business.

Mrs Brown said: 'Jason worked really hard to get those tools, so for somebody to just steal them is incredibly frustrating.

'He has had to cancel several jobs he had lined up because of these thieves.'

Mrs Brown first found out about the break-in after her brother-in-law Adrian Brown, who lives nearby, noticed on Monday morning.

After then consulting their CCTV recordings, they were able to see exactly what had happened.

She added: 'We were very shocked at first. I think now I'm annoyed more than anything, however, I have three children, aged nine, seven and six months and they are now very scared.

'We watched the footage and it seems like the people broke into our garage and had a master key which they used on our tipper, which were also trying on vehicles around the neighbourhood.'

The footage shows two suspects, one wearing a hooded top struggling to carry a large item, which Mrs Brown described as a wacker plate.

A third person, wearing a baseball cap, then joins them, as they make off with the tool.

Several power tools were taken in the raid, including chainsaws, a circular saw and an angle grinder.

Mrs Brown added: 'I'm definitely glad we have the CCTV fitted, it is useful to be able to share the footage on social media to try and help bring the people to justice.'

She added that she believes the group made off in either a black Ford Focus or a Vauxhall Astra van.

Anybody who may have information regarding the incident should contact Great Yarmouth CID on 101, quoting reference 36/53916/17.
