Burglars stole copper piping and alcohol from a village bowls club. Intruders broke into Wycliffe Bowls Club in Hall Lane, Bitteswell, near Lutterworth last week. The clubhouse suffered water damage after the thieves ripped out a length of copper piping. The incident took place sometime between 8pm on Tuesday, June 11 and 8.30am the next day. Pc Joshua Ace said: "The theft of the piping has caused damage to the building and the electrics and will no doubt cost a considerable amount of money to put right. "We would urge anyone who has been approached by someone in unusual circumstances attempting to sell cans and bottles of alcohol, including spirits, to contact us or have you heard any rumours locally about who may be responsible.
