Morecambe burglary leaves wedding plans in ruins

Morecambe Police are appealing for information after an engaged couple’s home was burgled in Morecambe over the weekend, and the theft of a safe left their wedding plans in ruins.

The stolen safe contained $3,000 US dollars, their two wedding rings and their passports.

The burglary took place at the couple’s flat on Hampsfell Drive, Morecambe sometime between 1.00pm on Friday 7th September and 6.00pm on Sunday 9th September.

The couple are due to get married in Las Vegas in less than four weeks’ time and police believe their home had been deliberately targeted.

PC Mark Nelson from Lancaster Target Team said: “It would appear that the offenders knew what they were looking for as they have left the TV, computer console and laptop untouched in the front room.

“This crime has obviously affected the couple’s wedding plans and they are devastated," he added. "They are desperate to recover their property, particularly their rings and passports.

“I would urge anybody that witnessed anything suspicious in the area around the time of the offence or knows anything that could assist with our investigation to get in touch.”

• Anyone with any information should call Lancashire Police on 101. People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
