About 15 vehicles were broken into, interfered with or damaged in a single night in Biggleswade on Monday night – and police have now appealed for information.

Police have received reports of about 15 incidents in the Kings Reach area on Monday night and in the early hours of Tuesday, with vehicles targeted in roads including Buttercup Mead, Venus Avenue, Rutherford Way and Kennett Drive.

Thieves gained entry, attempted to gain entry and caused criminal damage to the vehicles.

Police say officers have been conducting high-visibility patrols in the area, with the force’s Signpost hub for victims also offering support to those affected.

Chief Inspector Nick Masters, from the force’s Biggleswade community team, said: “We are working closely and engaging with the local community in order to address this sudden crime spree.

“Our enquiries are ongoing, and we would urge anyone with any information to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
