Police are appealing for information after three men ram-raided a Bakewell shop and stole clothes valued at several thousand pounds.

At about 2.30am today (Monday) thieves used a van – thought to be a Ford Transit – to smash the doors open at Brocklehursts clothing store in Bridge Street, Bakewell.

Once inside, crooks stole all coats from two racks – valued at “several thousands of pounds,” a police spokesperson confirmed.

One eye witness said there were three men involved in the burglary. One driver – who remained in the van – and two accomplices who went into the shop.

The van sped off in the direction of Rutland Square after the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
