Officers are asking for witnesses to come forward following the burglary of a popular seaside attraction.

At some point between 4.30pm on Tuesday, July 17, and 10.45am on Wednesday, July 18, entry was forced to a blue shipping container located off Kirkley Cliff Road between Kensington Gardens and St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Lowestoft.

A large Thomas the Tank Engine land train, with two carriages and an orange canopy, was stolen from within the container.

The vehicle, which is popular with children and families, usually runs up and down the South Beach promenade on the seafront.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area between the times stated should call police on 101, quoting reference 40241/18.
