Thieves broke into a garden in Hemel last week and stole a concrete steam train.

The incident took place between 6pm on Wednesday, September 21, and 4.15pm on Friday, September 23, in Gravel Lane. A garden gnome was also damaged. The garden ornament is heavy and it is believed that it would have taken two people to carry it away or possibly one person with a wheelbarrow.

Anyone with information is asked to call Herts Police on 101, quoting crime reference D1/16/6818.
