Police in East Devon are appealing for information after a spate of burglaries this month, one of which occurred near Sidmouth in Newton Poppleford.

According to a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police: "In each case, the break-ins have occurred at residential addresses during the day and tools have been used to gain entry.

"The offenders have then used bleach or other cleaning products to cover their tracks.

"On two occasions, a silver Skoda Octavia was present with two or three occupants, and a false number plate was used."

Three burglaries occurred on Tuesday, 8 September in Cullompton, Bradninch and Newton Poppleford, near Sidmouth.
