A Nelson motor dealer was targeted by thieves overnight between Monday and Tuesday when £10,000 of damage was caused to vehicles on the forecourt.

Three sets of headlights were stolen and a grill from Land-Rovers parked at Hillendale on Lomeshaye Industrial Estate. Police believe there were three offenders, who climbed over a fence to get in.

An appeal for any witnesses has now been issued and police are currently studying CCTV footage while following up leads after a garage in West Yorkshire was targeted in similar circumstances.

Call police on 101 with information or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
