Between 4pm on Saturday (March 9) and 8am on Sunday (March 10) the Flitwick Church in Church Road, Flitwick has been broken into.

The offenders attempted to gain entry to the building by smashing a kitchen window and back door causing damage, but were unsuccessful.

“We would like to speak to anyone who have seen anything suspicious in the area overnight.”
