Thieves smashed their way into a primary school and stole more than £10,000 worth of equipment.
The offenders broke into Linden Road Academy and stole 40 iPad Mini tablets and six laptops on Tuesday.
Deputy headteacher Peter Greaves said: “They took forty iPads, which the children use to learn in a number of ways. We had them in a cabinet that the children use. This will affect children’s learning – they were a significant investment by the school.”
