Police have warned van owners to be vigilant after tools were stolen from a van last night.
The van was targeted in Meir Heath on Wednesday night.

Police say enquiries are ongoing and are asking people to make sure the lock their vehicles and take other precautions.
A Staffordshire Police spokeswoman said: “During the evening of Wednesday June 17 a van has been broken into in the Meir Heath area and tools have been stolen.
“There were also a number of attempts on other vans in the Meir Heath, Trentham and Eccleshall areas but the offenders were disturbed and made off from the location.
“We will be carrying out CCTV enquiries in these areas but if anyone saw anything suspicious linking to these incidents then please contact Staffordshire Police on the 101/digital 101 or reply to this alert which will come direct to myself.
“Please can we remind people to ensure that their vehicles are locked and secured and all high value items removed from the vehicles when they are left unattended.”
