The incidents happened on the evening of Sunday, February 2, and on 9am the next day (during the winter the centre opens at 9.30am).

The offenders damaged security equipment and fencing to gain access to the Warwickshire County Council site.

They then took 60 litres of red diesel from one of the vehicles – spilling fuel on the floor in the process.

They then tipped over recycling bins, and emptied the clothing banks.

No description of offenders is currently available, but police are currently examining CCTV footage.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact Warwickshire police on 101, quoting incident number 157 on 03/02/2020. Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
