Detective Inspector Ian Simmons said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who may have any information about these thefts.

“We’re working with Cambridgeshire County Council and local schools giving them crime prevention advice and asking them to remove cash from their schools.

“I have officers reviewing CCTV footage, but I would like local residents to call us if they have any information or see anything suspicious in the area.”
