Burglars targeted a junior school in St Ives over the weekend.

An investigation is under way after burglars forced their way into Westfield Junior School, in Ramsey Road, at some point between 6pm on Friday (November 20) and 8.30am on Sunday (November 22).

It is not known whether the burglars took anything or whether the premises were damaged in the raid.

In a post online, PC Lee Hurley said: “Investigations have begun and we are appealing for anyone who recalls seeing or hearing anything suspicious.”

PC Hurley said there had also been reports received of a further two burglaries in St Ives over the weekend, with break-ins “at businesses on the St Ives industrial estate”.

PC Hurley said one of the break-ins was discovered by an officer on patrol.

Anyone with information on any of the incidents should contact Cambridgeshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
