Gate theft in Old Buckenham

Gates to childrens' playground disappear overnight
A pair of five-barred gates that provided part of the fencing around  the children's play area in Old Buckenham have been stolen sometime between late last night (Friday) and 8am this morning. Should you have been in the area outside the Church Rooms during that time and noticed anything suspicious then the police would like to hear from you.
You can ring the police on 101 or, if you prefer, you can speak to the Parish Council chairman Steve Milner on 01953 860866.
They were large, heavy gates (seen on the right in a photo taken at the opening of the play area in June 2010) and would have needed probably more than one person and a largish vehicle to take them away.
New gates will be needed to help keep the play area safe for the children playing there. They will be expensive to replace so any help you can give will be much appreciated.
