Gifts pour in after burglary

FRIENDS of Eastville Park say their faith in humanity has been restored after the community rallied to help following the theft of more than 600 children's Christmas presents.

Volunteer Andrew Gee was shocked to discover thieves had ransacked a building at the bowling green in Eastville Park where 680 wrapped gifts were being stored, most of them costing just a few pounds.

They were being held there after the Friends' main annual fundraiser at the park, a Santa's grotto event, had to be cancelled due to high winds.
