A man is being questioned after a service station was burgled in Somercotes.

Police were called out just after midnight this morning (July 24) after tyres were taken from the Somercotes HIll service station.

A witness reported seeing two offenders - one who got into a car and another who made their escape on foot after taking the tyres.

A 30-year-old man, alleged to have left the scene on foot, was arrested on suspicion of committing a non-dwelling burglary.

If you saw anything suspicious which could help the police investigation call the force on 101. The second offender is still believed to be at large.
