Police say there have been several reports of mobile phones stolen from county pubs and clubs over the weekend.

A police spokesman said: “We would advise anyone out in busy, crowded places to have their wits about them at all times and make sure they are aware of any valuables they have on them.

“If you use a phone, make sure you put it away out of public view at the end of the call so as not to tempt an opportunist thief.”
