Fleetwood town centre is being targeted by opportunist thieves.

Opportunist thieves ransacking cafes to steal charity boxes, petty cash and bacon have swept through Fleetwood – and police today warned other businesses could be at risk.

Yobs are using dark alleyways to go unnoticed before smashing their way in to the properties, often making off with a haul that is worth less than the damaged they caused.

Police are now urging traders to install external lighting, which they say has already helped stop one cafe falling prey to thieves.
