Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a burglary at commercial premises in Ballyclare.

"We believe this incident occurred sometime between 3:35am and the time it was reported to us," he said.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the Doagh Road area between these times and saw any suspicious activity or vehicles , or anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact detectives in Antrim on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 91 of 22/05/18.
