POLICE investigating a £7,000 power tool burglary at Slaidburn are looking for a distinctive white Transit-type van with blue cab sides and damaged bumper.

Three white men in their mid-20s were asking about scrap in the locality where a shipping container was raided outside a house under renovation.

The tools included Stihl, DeWalt, Bostich, Fien, Metabo, Hitachi and Laser ones, and police say anyone with information can contact them on 101.
