Have your say

POLICE have released CCTV images of a man and a woman they want to speak to after a Poppy Appeal collection box was stolen in Denmead.

The incident happened at around 4.40pm on Friday, when a man and a woman entered the Southern Co-op, in Hambledon Road.

After walking around the store, the man distracted the cashier while the woman stole the collection box, which was at the till.

PC Sarah Newman, said: ‘This was a disgraceful crime which is disrespectful to those who have given so much for our country.

‘I would urge everybody to look at these pictures and get in touch with us if you recognise these people, or have any other information that could assist our inquiry.’

Anyone with any information should call PC Newman at Bishops Waltham police station on 101, or alternatively call charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
