Comments (0)

A 30-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested after a series of thefts from campers at Uttoxeter Racecourse.

Police were called out to the Wood Lane course at around 4.20am this morning when a man was 'disturbed' in a tent at the Acoustic Festival of Britain venue.

Uttoxeter officers, with the dog support unit and armed response team - who were 'not responding in an armed capacity' - searched to surrounding area before finding the suspect.

Several discarded items of stolen property, which remain unspecified by police, were located around the site.

Officers were unable to say how many campers had been targeted as they interviewed victims and witnesses today.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 55 of May 30.

More to follow.
