BURGLARS have stolen almost £20,000 in cash from a social club in Fleetwood.

The Kings Own Comrades Association, on Adelaide Street, was targeted between 12.40am and 6.45am on April 2 when a thief scaled a 7ft wall to access the premises.

Thieves then used cutting equipment to gain access to the safe and escaped with nearly £9,000 in club takings, almost £4,000 in social fund cash and £6,000 in savings.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information to contact them on 101.
