Cash stolen in Middlesbrough post office break-in

Thieves who broke into a Teesside post office and escaped with a large amount of cash, are being sought by police.

The break-in took place overnight on Thursday at the premises on Marton Road, Middlesbrough.

A safe which contained an undisclosed sum of money was taken, along with computer equipment.

Police said a vehicle would have been needed as the safe was large and heavy, and urged anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious to get in touch.
