Thieves to dump at sea please!
HEARTLESS thieves broke into an RNLI lifeguard station and stole vital lifesaving equipment worth £2,000 on Friday night.
Shocked lifeguards arrived at work on Saturday morning at Canford Cliffs to find that their office had been broken into and the equipment, along with a collection box, had been taken.
The RNLI, which has its headquarters at Poole, said it was believed that the premises was targeted between 11pm on Friday night and 4am on Saturday morning.
After forcing their way into the charity’s office, the culprits stole the lifeguards’ handheld radios, a defibrillator and the collection box.
They also took a responder bag, but later decided to dump it in the sea – damaging all the vital first aid equipment kept inside.
The charity said it would cost around £2,000 to replace the equipment.
