Hunt for pumpkin thieves

Thieves have stolen dozens of pumpkins from a garden centre in the New Forest.

Some of them had been grown by children from Beaulieu Primary School who were planning on using the squashes for their Harvest Festival Display before being donated to a food bank.

Patrick Fairweather, who runs Fairweather Garden Centre, has appealed for information on social media.

He says " the garden is open to visitors all of the time, whether our Head Gardener or volunteers are on site or not and we trust the public to enjoy it and leave the vegetables untouched."

"This is very upsetting for the children and our volunteers who put so much work in to growing all our vegetables and making the garden such an inspiration place to visit."
