Goodwood campsites ‘targeted by thieves’
Campers at this year’s Goodwood Revival claim tents were slashed and broken into, and police confirm several thefts were reported.
Jenni Nuttall, senior media relations officer for Sussex Police says: ‘A report was received that one tent had been broken into three nights running. Food, a battery pack, bank cards and train tickets had been stolen. Two more tents and one car had mobile phones stolen and another two tents and a motorhome had bags stolen from them.’
A number of showgoers took to social media, claiming that the attacks at Lord March’s estate near Chichester, Sussex on 8-11 September were carried out using knives to cut through tents to steal mobile phones and watches.
Laura Gilbert-Burke, spokesperson for Goodwood says: ‘Minor thefts in one of the campsites were reported and the police are looking into them.’
