APPEAL: Stolen School Minibus
Police are searching for thieves who stole a minibus from a North Yorkshire primary school.
Four hooded suspects (see CCTV images, below) are believed to have taken the Peugeot Boxer from Lythe Church of England Primary School near Whitby.
The school had recently bought it as a replacement for its previous vehicle, which was also stolen.
Officers are appealing for witnesses and information to the incident, which happened late at night on Wednesday (18th January).
The minibus is thought to have been driven north out of the village, along the A174.

They are also asking residents who live in the area and have CCTV to contact them if they have footage of anyone acting suspiciously.
