Thieves have stolen a vital piece of equipment from a fairground ride which is being set up in March.
Police are putting out an appeal after a blue steel runner was taken from the waltzer fair ride in City Road Car Park last night (Saturday,September 19).
March Statute Fair will be running from Wednesday to Saturday.
PCSO Dawn Rae said in a Facebook post: “The ride cannot operate without it.
“If any body has seen it dumped around the town or knows anything about the theft please call 101.
“We will have some very unhappy children in town if we cant find it.”
