Thieves clear out council works
A BREAK-IN at a workshop used by Sherborne Town Council has been described as "deplorable" by the mayor.
Power tools, gardening machinery and a white Toyota Hilux pick-up truck were all taken during the early morning break-in.
The vehicle was later found near Frome, but was completely burnt out, according to police.
As the Western Gazette went to print the power tools and machinery had still not been found.
