More than £30,000 worth of iPads have been stolen from a secondary school. 

Police are appealing for information after £37,000 worth of iPads were stolen in a burglary at Hove Park School overnight on Friday or Saturday morning.

The 152 iPads were being stored ready for the new term at the school in Hangleton Way, Hove, were stolen sometime between 9pm on Friday and noon on Saturday (21 June).

Police would like to hear from anyone who saw any vehicles or people acting suspiciously in the Hangleton area during the time, or if they have any information to contact police.

DC Richard Valder-Davis said: "A large number of iPads awaiting allocation to pupils have been stolen from the school. We would like to hear from anyone that may have heard about this burglary being planned or has any information about where the iPads are now. It is likely that the offenders knew the school layout and the area the equipment was being stored."

Any witness or anyone with information is asked to call 101 or email, quoting serial 650 of 21/6. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
