Police are appealing for information after a ships anchor was stolen in Berwick.

Between 5pm Friday, March 11, and 8am Monday, March 14, thieves stole the anchor from the Goswick Sands area.

The metal anchor is around 6ft tall and weighs around one tonne.

The Police say it would have taken a number of people or specialised lifting equipment to have moved the anchor due to its sheer size and weight.

“If anyone saw anyone in the area over the weekend trying to move the anchor, or acting suspiciously, then contact us with any information.”

Anyone with any information into the theft or as to the whereabouts of the anchor is asked to contact police in Northumberland on 03456 043 043 ext 69191.
