Break-in at Esk Valley school

BURGLARS have broken into an Esk Valley school and stolen computer equipment.

The break-in happened at Glaisdale Primary School between Friday 25 March and Sunday 27 March.

The thieves had attempted to get into a side building but eventually gained access to the main school premises by removing a small window at the back of the school.

At least three laptops were stolen.

Head teacher Ros Argile said a member of staff found out about the burglary on Sunday morning.

She said the incident was “very unfortunate” for the school but sadly opportunists do target schools.
