Police are appealing for information after 30 iPads were taken from a primary school.

The break-in at Walgrave Primary School occurred between 6pm on Friday, November 22 and 9.30am on Saturday, November 23.

The padlock to the front gates in Kettering Road was forced and the offenders broke into the school through a window at the back, near Jubilee Way.

The iPads, which were in blue cases, were stolen, along with a small safe containing cash.

A dark blue Audi A4 was seen the area at around 1.30pm on Friday and a van was spotted outside the Kettering Road gates at around 10pm the same evening.

Officers believe this incident could be linked to a burglary at Brampton Primary School, in Chapel Brampton, on Wednesday, 13 November, between 6pm and 12 midnight, when offenders broke into the school and stole 16 Toshiba Satellite Pro laptops.

Witnesses to either burglary, or anyone with information about those involved or the stolen property, are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
