Pies and sausages taken in Hampshire garden centre raid

Almost 50 savoury pies have been stolen in a raid on a Hampshire garden centre.

The thieves took a crate of 48 pies, a crate of 18 pieces of cod and a box of jumbo sausages from Arturi's Garden Centre on Allington Lane, Fair Oak.

It is believed the burglars must have used a vehicle - which police said could have been parked in Allington Lane - to make their escape.

The break-in happened some time between 1700 GMT on Friday and 0845 GMT on Saturday.

A yellow transformer, which is used to power lighting, was also stolen.

Pc Paul Osborne, of Eastleigh police station, said: "Due to the size and weight of the items stolen we believe it is likely that the offenders would have used a vehicle in order to transport the goods."

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact Hampshire Police.
