STOLEN plants have been returned to a Herefordshire charity, three days after they went missing.

A Leominster police spokesperson said officers returned the stolen plants to the Leominster Meeting Centre, near the Priory, yesterday (August 9).

And although they have been returned, police will still be conducting an investigation into the theft, which took place on August 6.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police quoting reference number 241_I_06082021.

It is not the first time the charity's plants have been targeted.

In May, the community club that supports people with dementia was the victim of vandalism when five plant pots were smashed, and broken bottles and cans were strewn across the road.

They were replaced by the Leominster branch of DIY giant B&Q, which offered the centre new plant pots to replace those damaged by the vandals.
