A Nelson primary school was broken into and £2,000 of damage caused on Tuesday night (9/10/18).

Staff walked in to find rooms ransacked yesterday morning.

They say damage was caused to doors and office furniture.

The headteacher, Anne-Marie Neild, says:

“We were devastated to discover our school had been broken into and so much needless damage caused.

"The thieves got very little from their break in but have caused nearly £2,000 of damage and created so much work for our staff in trying to get school fully operational again.”

A police spokesperson say officers were called to the scene at 6.05am on Wednesday (10/1/0/18) to reports of a burglary.

It's believed the offenders searched through the school, but there are no details on what was taken - if anything.

The school say they have CCTV images of those responsible and want to share them with the public, so they can be caught.
