POLICE have asked Barnoldswick town centre traders to once again remain vigilant after another spate of burglaries in one night.

A cash bag containing £150 in coins was stolen from H Purcell on Frank Street overnight last Friday.

Huppach & Co Jewellers on Rainhall Road was hit at 11-45 p.m. when would-be thieves removed a glass panel from the shop but ran off when the alarm was triggered.

Burglars also tried to gain entry to Heaps of Tackle in the same road, unsuccessfully trying to force the door open.

Anyone should report any suspicious activity or information to the police on 472441.
