Police are appealing for information following the theft of a number of oil burners during New Year's Eve night.
Four oil burners were reported stolen from homes in the Canterbury Park area of the Waterside in Londonderry, while a fifth burner was taken from a property in Good Shepherd Glen, also in the Waterside.
Councillor Gerard Diver said the thefts were clearly planned: “To steal someone's burner, leaving them without means to heat their home is despicable,” he added.
