An investigation is underway after several Isle of Wight beach huts were broken into.

Following fifteen break-ins, officers from the Sandown Bay Neighbourhood Policing Team will be carrying out regular patrols on the Shanklin to Sandown revetment.

All the huts were broken into at some point between 8pm on Friday 25 January and 10am the following morning, says Hampshire Constabulary.

Police said one of the beach huts had items including beach shoes, binoculars and surf gloves taken from inside

Sergeant Georgina Leavold said:

“We will be carrying out additional patrols in the area and have been reviewing CCTV, but are keen to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious.

“I’d remind people not to store valuables in their beach hut, to ensure the doors and windows are properly locked, and to board up any gaps between the floor and door that could be exploited by opportunistic thieves.”

If you saw anything suspicious call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously,  quoting 44190031568.
