Police are appealing for information following the theft for four post boxes in the Thetford area over the weekend.

The thefts happened between 11am on Saturday January 17 and 5pm on Monday January 19, when offender(s) have removed red Victorian style Royal Mail post boxes from Ickburgh Road in Mundford, Lynn Road in Northwold and two from School Road in Foulden.

A spokesman for Royal Mail said: ”We apologise to customers for any inconvenience this may cause. Customers can use other postboxes in the area or drop their mail off at any Post Office branch.

“Royal Mail has some 115,000 post boxes around the country and thankfully thefts of postboxes are relatively rare.

“Any customers who need help finding their nearest postbox can call Royal Mail’s customer services team on 08453 740 740.”

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed these thefts or anyone with further information and are asked to contact officers at Thetford Police Station on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
