3 comments, , by , in News

Police are investigating a break-in at the council’s education headquarters at Hayfield House in Lerwick.

The incident apparently took place between 10pm and 11pm yesterday evening. At just after 11pm the alarm could be heard ringing loudly in the area. However, it is not known yet whether anything was stolen.

The police were carrying out door-to-door enquiries this morning. If anyone knows anything about the incident they are asked to call Police Scotland on 101.

    Perhaps somebody was trying to break out……
