Two dog thieves were caught on camera stealing a pair of black Labradors from outside a Marks & Spencer.

The moment they ran off with the two dogs was captured on CCTV, with police releasing the footage in a bid to catch the perpetrators.

The incident happened outside a branch of M&S in Nantwich, Cheshire on Saturday evening, with police saying the theft has left the owner ‘deeply upset’.

The owner tied the two dogs up before entering the store on Beam Street, with CCTV showing the two suspects running off down Market Street shortly after 6pm with the Labradors. 

Det Sgt Vicki Shelton said: “The dogs’ owner is understandably deeply upset. Pets are part of the family and having them stolen is a harrowing and distressing experience.

“I would like to reassure members of the community that we take incidents of this nature extremely seriously and are doing all we can to establish who stole the dogs, make them face the consequences of their actions and have the pets returned to their rightful owner.

“Enquiries are ongoing and I urge anyone who believes they may know the identities of the men in the CCTV footage to get in touch.

“You cannot see their faces clearly in the footage but we are hoping that some members of the public may recognise them from their builds, the clothes they were wearing and the way they run.

“We also want to hear from anyone who witnessed the dogs being stolen or has any other information that may aid our investigation.

“Perhaps you think you know where the dogs are, or have CCTV or dashcam footage that may be relevant to the investigation.”

According to Cheshire Police both men in the footage are white, with average builds, short dark hair and were wearing dark shoes.

The suspect holding both dogs’ leads is described as wearing a dark jacket and light coloured jogging bottoms, while the other man had a black jacket, dark pants/jeans on and was carrying a dark bag.

If you have any information or additional footage on the incident, you can give Cheshire Police a call on 101 quoting incident number 21000195850.

The Manchester Christmas Markets is moving to Piccadilly Gardens this year

Big changes for the Christmas Markets this year…

Manchester’s beloved Christmas Markets are making a grand return to the city this year, but its main hub will be found in a different location.

While the heart of the markets is usually centered around Albert Square, ongoing renovations to the Town Hall have forced them to move to Piccadilly Gardens, the council have confirmed today.

The area will be transformed into the ‘Winter Gardens’, with all the usual yuletide bars, market stalls and food huts.

Plans for the Winter Gardens also include a one-way system and separate entrances and exits, as well as a strict limit on visitors to limit the spread of Covid-19.

They are also adding a fully accessible toilet to make the Winter Garden as inclusive as possible.

Councillor Pat Karney, Manchester’s Christmas spokesperson, said: “It’s wonderful to welcome back our world-famous Christmas Markets and the addition of the Winter Gardens for the very first time.

“Manchester has been the capital of Christmas for twenty-two years since the very first Christmas Market arrived in the UK in 1999 and we know it was a huge disappointment that we had to scale back our celebrations last year.

“We’re making up for lost time this year and I can’t wait to see the transformation in the city centre into the festive wonderland we know and love.”

Last year, in what would have been the markets’ twenty-first birthday, the festivities were cancelled as a result of the pandemic, much to the dismay of Mancunians all across the region.

At the time, Councillor Karney said that even the proposed smaller markets didn’t meet public health approval, adding that the council ‘could never take any risks’ with people’s wellbeing.

He said: “We’ve cancelled everything. It’s not met our commercial and public health tests, so the three markets in those locations have been cancelled, and won’t take place. It was a million miles from the traditional Christmas Markets, which obviously people would have been very anxious about.”
