Two motorcycles - a red Honda CRF450R and a green Kawasaki KXF250, respectively numbered 13 and 44 - were stolen from a caravan park in Hastings at around 1.30am on Saturday, May 13.

Power tools and machinery have been stolen from units and garages across the two districts, and in Bexhill safes in business premises have been broken into and, in some cases, removed by intruders.

Inspector Dan Russell, of the neighbourhood policing team, said: “We’ve unfortunately seen a recent rise in overnight break-ins, and are asking that if anyone sees or hears anything suspicious around commercial properties they should contact police immediately on 999.”

Anyone with information about break-ins to date or what has become of stolen items is asked to contact police on 101 or email [email protected] or report details online at or phone 101.

Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
