We are appealing for information after a theft of a charity box from Kettering railway station.

A collection box for Guide Dogs for the Blind Association containing £300 which had been collected for the charity was stolen at around 10.20pm on Tuesday 18 April by two men.

Officers believe the incident may be linked to two other thefts of charity boxes in the Kettering area.

We are releasing CCTV images of two people officers would like to speak to in connection with the theft. The images are not very clear, but we are hoping that someone will be able to tell us who these people are, or it might prompt someone to come forward with information.

Sgt Mark Rushin said: “Any theft is a criminal offence but it’s always particularly galling when money is stolen from a charity. Members of the public have donated their money to a cause that they care about, and callous thieves have chosen to take that money for themselves, depriving the people who it was intended to help.

“If anyone has any information about the incident, please contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference number 311 03/04/17."
