£25,000 worth of mobile phones have been stolen in West Sussex.

Police say a delivery destined for the 3 Store in Bognor Regis was stolen from a courier van nearby.

The white Vauxhall Mervano was parked in West Street in the town when it was broken into between 10am and midday on Tuesday 6 August.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the West Street area on Tuesday morning and could have seen someone acting suspiciously around the van or other vehicles.

A police spokesman said:

"We have been given a list of all the stolen handsets and their IMEI codes so any phones we recover will be able to be traced back to the theft easily.

"Anyone who buys one of these stolen phones should bear in mind that the handsets will be confiscated by us and they will not get their money back."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 951 of 6 August or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
