Terry Tyler, a member of Great Ashby Community Council, said: "I'm so disappointed that our community centre has been burgled, especially as someone who works to keep our centre as clean and tidy as I can.

"CCTV coverage for the whole site is long overdue and I fully support the community council's objective to install it.

"The community centre, Busy Bees and Budgens do have some CCTV coverage, which I hope will help the police catch the culprits."
