Worcestershire Jehovah's Witnesses hall's gates found

A pair of solid wooden gates that were stolen from a religious centre in Worcestershire have been recovered.

They were stolen from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses at Twyford, in Evesham on 1 December, and are worth several thousand pounds.

A police officer noticed the gates on a caravan site in Cleeve Prior.

PC James Wood said they were pleased to have been able to find the gates "and return them to their rightful owner - who is delighted to have them back".

He added: "The investigation into who stole the gates is still ongoing, but this is a successful result for us so far which sends a clear message that we will not tolerate such blatant criminality.

"With this in mind, I would urge whoever is responsible for the theft to hand themselves in at the earliest opportunity."
