Police shocked by 'callous' theft

Thieves who stole a Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal collection box from a church have been branded 'despicable' by police.

An investigating officer said: 'This was a despicable and callous theft and I cannot understand why someone would commit such a terrible act.

'It is obvious the person who has done this has no respect.'
