Nearly 5,000 bottles of wine worth £80,000 have been stolen from Bolney Winery in West Sussex.

Staff at the winery discovered the theft on Thursday, with the goods being stolen from their warehouse overnight on 26 February.

The retail value of the wines stolen amounts to over £80,000, which were destined for a range of supermarkets including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and other local independent merchants.

We are understandably upset and frustrated by the loss of such a large amount of wine, as we work incredibly hard here at Bolney Wine Estate to produce top quality English wines. If anyone has information, could you please get in touch on 01444 881575 or phone the Police on 101.

– Samantha Linter, MD and head winemaker

The Vineyard has been making wines since 1976 but has never been targeted by thieves before. They now plan to install CCTV cameras.

They're urging anyone to contact police if they see any Bolney Estate wine being offered for sale, particularly if it is going cheaper than the recommended sale price in an unusual sales location.

A man who was attacked when a thief broke into his home in Perry Barr is asking the public to "do the right thing" and come forward with any information.

Peter Edmonds was at home with his mother when the attacker broke in and tried to steal his car keys.

He described his attacker as black, 6ft tall and in his 30s. West Midlands Police are still looking for him.

Cooper: Security services' hands were tied by May

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper claimed the security services' hands were tied for nearly five years by Mrs May's "wrong" decision to scrap powers to move terror suspects away from their extremist networks.

Relocation powers have been reintroduced by the coalition this year but Ms Cooper called for the security services to immediately brief the Intelligence and Security Committee on how the loss of the measures might have affected their work.

This would allow MPs to review whether the loss of relocation powers had led to more British jihadists travelling to Syria and Iraq and more radicalisation in the UK.

Ms May told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show:

I think [the security services'] hands have been tied I think by the Government. I think we should have had the control orders in place across this Parliament which we haven't had because they removed some of the powers, and I think that has caused them more problems.

It's taken them five years, five years of us arguing, five years of security experts arguing that this was the wrong approach.

And so I think that the fact that Theresa May could take the decision to remove those relocation powers against all that expert advice, against the arguments that were made in Parliament, I think was the wrong thing to do. We do need to know more about whether that has increased the risk as a result, about what difference it's made to some of these very serious cases.

Full video appears to show missing British schoolgirls

CCTV footage has been released which appears to show three British schoolgirls, who it is feared have entered Syria to join Islamic State.

The images were released by Turkish news channel A Haber.

The three girls, believed to be Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and 15-year-old Amira Abase, are seen at a bus station in Istanbul in the video.

They can be seen leaving a part of the station in the early hours of the next morning along with other passengers and walking along snow-covered pavements into a busy departure lounge.

In the footage, the girls are shown wrapped up in heavy winter jackets, two with furry hoods pulled up, and carrying packed sports bags and holdalls.
