Two Lincolnshire stores raided in same night

Police are investigating whether two raids on stores in Lincolnshire on the same night are linked.

Offenders used a crowbar to force the rear door at the Co-op store in Northgate, Louth, late on Wednesday but fled when the alarm sounded.

A short time later the Co-op in Church Street, Alford, about 13 miles away, was broken into and alcohol was taken and a cigarette machine damaged.

Officers have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
