Thieves have made off with a number of items from a Lisburn primary school after an overnight break-in.

The burglary happened at Knockmore Primary School in Hertford Crescent at around 1.30am on Wednesday.

A window was broken to gain entry to the building and a number of items taken from a classroom.

Police believe the culprit left a number of items behind and urged them to contact officers before they track them down.

Inspector Robinson said: "It is an appalling crime when schools, which carry out the very important function of educating our youth, are targeted by criminals and valuable resources are stolen.

"Police believe that the burglar may have left behind a number of items which have been duly recovered and will be examined. The person involved may wish to contact police before police contact them”

Anyone with any information about the burglary is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting CC177 11/04/2018.
