It has been reported in This Is Somerset on October 15 in the article titled ‘St Cuthbert’s Church Burglar Caught By Footprints (And CCTV)’ that a laptop was allegedly stolen from an office at St Cuthbert’s Church in Wells, Somerset. According to the report, magistrates in Somerset were informed that the church, which has a self-contained office, was open to visitors and parish workers on September 3, when the laptop is believed to have been taken. The next day, a worker came into the office to find visible footprints and a laptop of unknown value to be missing.
