One man was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and burglary, and currently remains in police custody for questioning.

Officer said if you have any info, call 101 and quote reference 40/16060/24.

The Post Office post on social media said: “Regarding questions around smoke billowing from the building. This was due to a fogger that was recently installed as one of the [security] measures. This worked perfectly and was triggered when The Post Office alarm went off, thus filling the building with fog.”
