Police appeal over stolen race tickets

Police are seeking witnesses to an incident at this year's Glorious Goodwood race meeting near Chichester in which a large number of tickets were stolen.

They were taken from the ticket collection point at the downland racecourse, part of the Goodwood estate, between noon and 12.30pm on Saturday.

Investigating officers believe that some people among crowds thronging to the event may have seen the theft taking place.

They ask that they, or anyone else who may have information, contact police by emailing or phoning 101, quoting serial 739 of 1/8.

Three men, all from London, have been arrested in connection with the incident, questioned and bailed until 15 September pending further enquiries.

A 45-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft and money laundering, a 21-year-old man on suspicion of theft and a 20-year-old man on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

Manston Airport is to be used as an emergency lorry park when Operation Stack is in place, to help ease traffic in Kent caused by delays in Calais.

The disused airport in Kent is 25 miles from the Channel Tunnel and the Port of Dover. There is already opposition from local people and politicians, who say parking lorries at Manston will spread the chaos even further across the country.

Parking lorries at Manston will be part of a temporary alternative to vehicles queuing on the M20 as part of Operation Stack. Stack has led to sections of the M20 being turned into an HGV park for up to 5,000 lorries whenever services at the Channel Tunnel or Dover port have beenb disrupted.

The future of Manston Airport has been the subject of fierce debate. Locals campaigned against the closure of the airport and plans to turn it into a business and residential area.
