Theft at children's centre
Cartons of milk were damaged and stolen from a children's centre in Shaftesbury.
Twenty pints of milk were stolen from outside the main gates at the North Dorset Children's Centre in Wincombe Lane between 5am and 7:15am on Wednesday morning.
Another 40 cartons were pierced, causing them to leek onto the pavement and nearby road.
The trays were left at the entrance of the property for the pupils later that morning.
Constable Alistair James, of Shaftesbury police said, "This mindless act has left a vast number of children without milk and also caused the centre financial loss.
"This children's centre supports families in need and provides a fantastic service, and crimes like this have a big impact."
