Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

TWO hot tubs have been stolen from a gar­den cen­tre in Bethers­den.

The tubs, worth a com­bined £15,000, were taken from Kent Hot Tubs and Spas, which is based at Green­way Gar­den Cen­tre, in Ash­ford Road.

The theft took place in the early hours of Thurs­day morn­ing.

Owner of the spa com­pany, Martin Hughes, said: “They smashed through the gar­den cen­tre gates and lifted them off their plinths.

“They emp­tied them of wa­ter but they are still mas­sive, I don’t know how they did it.

“This is a small busi­ness so this is a huge prob­lem for me as they smashed up an­other one try­ing to get out.”

One is a Thun­der Bay model made of cedar red wood with a bur­gundy lid with a split in it.

The other is a Yukon with a grey lid.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion con­tact Mr Hughes on 07971 196599 or the po­lice on 01303 289180.
