POLICE are appealing for information about the theft of a rabbit trap and damage caused at allotments in Chatteris.

The incident happened overnight Saturday (May 12) to Sunday at Chapman allotments site in Westmoor Drove.

The victim, a 66-year-old man, has planted flowers in an antiques wheelbarrow on Saturday evening and set the rabbit trap.

Next morning he found the flowers had been tipped out and the wheelbarrow and trap both gone.

The wheelbarrow was later found in a nearby field but the trap, which is worth about £45, has not been recovered.

It is believed other damage may also have been caused at the allotments on the night.

Anyone with information should contact PC Chris Goodman, on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800-555111.
