The burglaries occurred on the 30th December 2013 between 4pm and 4.30pm. The first incident was in a shop on St Paul's Street in which a mobile phone was reported stolen. In the second case a small amount of cash was reported stolen from a shop on the High Street.

Anyone who recognises either of these men is asked to call 101 with information for the attention of investigating officer PC Andrew Donaldson.



Rescue plan for cash strapped hospitals

A reprieve has been handed to two of the region's hospitals at the centre of a financial crisis.

The Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust has been unable to balance the books since signing a private finance initiative to pay for a new hospital for Peterborough.

It cost £289 million to build and at the moment needs an extra £40 million a year just to keep it running. In the end it could cost one and a half billion pounds.

Now the NHS regulator Monitor has come up with a rescue package aimed at turning things around.
