Outdoor jackets worth around £10,000 have been stolen from a store in Kirkby Stephen.

The burglary took place during the early hours of Monday 23 November, at the Mad About Mountains Store on Market Street.

Police are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen suspicious activity to contact them:

Any incident of this nature is treated seriously and we urge the public to come forward with any information that may assist us with this ongoing investigation.

In particular we are appealing to anyone who is offered expensive outdoor jackets at a much cheaper rate than the normal retail price, especially in the run up to Christmas.”
