Three village post boxes stolen

Three Royal Mail post boxes have been stolen from villages in west Somerset.

The boxes all contained mail and two were taken with their stands and concrete fixings - leaving a hole in the ground. The third was cut off.

Police believe the boxes were probably taken as items of memorabilia rather than for scrap metal. "There is a market for them - through a reclamation yard or an internet auction site - you could expect to pay anything between £200 and £400. They are all clearly identifiable so if anyone is concerned about an item they have or are offered for sale we can easily see if it is one that has been taken from the area." Insp Samuel Williams said.
