Thieves stole computers worth thousands of pounds from a school.

The crooks smashed windows to get into the Billericay School, in School Road, Billericay.

Once inside, they ransacked three classrooms, before helping themselves to 11 monitors and four computers.

The combined value of the haul and the cost of the damage to the school is thought to be about £8,000.

Witnesses to the burglary, which happened between 4.15pm on Friday, September 30, and 7am yesterday, can contact police at Billericay on 101 Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
