Cotswold Police are appealing for information after a large amount of chocolate was stolen from the back of a lorry near Cirencester last night.

The incident saw thieves make of with 12 pallets of Walkers chocolate.

It is estimated that the chocolate is worth around £10,000.

The lorry was parked in a lay by on the A417 near Cirencester, with the incident taking place between 8pm on Wednesday night and 6am Thursday morning.

In the appeal on Twitter, Cotswold Police tweeted an image of Mr Greedy from the Mr Men, saying: "Can you help us ID the greedy sweet toothed suspect?"
