Thieves have broken into a Sea Cadets base in Hampshire and stolen their entire fleet of kayaks.
Five kayaks and paddles were taken from the site next door to the Romsey Rapids sometime over the weekend.
It meant the group was forced to pull out of yesterday afternoon's carnival procession.
The make of the Kayaks are 'Dagger GT 7.8' and the police are asking people who sees them being offered for sale, to contact them.
Staff and cadets say they are disappointed.
