Police are appealing for information after three people were caught on CCTV breaking into a shop with a crow bar.
The burglary happened in Caldicot, Monmouthshire, at around 1.10am yesterday morning.
Once inside the One Stop shop, they took approximately 10 bottles of vodka.
We appreciate that they have obscured their faces but perhaps you recognise their clothing or maybe you were in the area at that time and you saw them?
One of the people was on a push bike.
Monmouthshire County Council is to switch off its street lights between midnight and 6am in residential areas, as part of a budget saving exercise.
Locations affected by the change will be Magor, Undy, Rogiet, Portskewett, Caerwent, Llanfoist, Llanellen, Govilion, Gilwern and Llanelly Hill.
The switch off will take place from Saturday, 28th October. The council said no lights will be turned off in areas of traffic calming, pedestrian crossings or other high risk pedestrian areas.
In previous years, we have been able to make significant savings through working more efficiently. However, the scale of cuts in recent years means that we can’t avoid making savings that could impact on the communities we serve. I understand entirely that many people won’t like the idea of streetlights being turned off but we have limited the hours when this will happen and I’m confident that we have done what we can to minimise the impact.
