A town restaurant has hit out against a 'planned' theft of two hanging flower baskets.

The baskets hung over the front entrance to Pomegranate restaurant, bar & art gallery in Bungay.

Restaurant manager Kinsey Foster said: "We suspect they were taken on Saturday night (September 28).

You may also want to watch:

"It is incredibly heavy and too high so whoever took them planned to take it. It is, of course, theft.

"They were over two metres high, I am inclined to believe it's two males I saw on Saturday night trying to gain entry to a couple of businesses across from us.

"They were rude and dismissive and hung around outside until after we closed."

A spokesperson for Suffolk Constabulary said: "We were contacted for reports of a theft at Pomegranate restaurant. It occurred between 9pm on September 28 and 10am on September 29."

Anyone with information is urged to contact or Suffolk Police on 101 quoting crime reference 175 of Thursday, October 3.
