A primary school has made a heartfelt plea for playground toys after equipment was stolen from its grounds.
Teachers at Locking Primary School discovered scooters, bikes, balls and lego had been stolen from an outside shed on Bank Holiday Monday, which will cost around £1,000 to replace.
Headteacher, Joanne Jones, said: "They didn't try to get into the building but those responsible took a variety of children's toys from the primary's outside play area.
"We are upset, the equipment was there because pupils raised money to have it through the Friends of Locking School group.
"With budget cuts affecting teaching across the country, there is a strong possibility the primary school won't be able to fund the items replacement.

The school says it has logged a complaint with police and would welcome replacement donations.
