CROWDS of police are hunting for three men in Bridgwater in connection with a burglary in Devon this morning.

The Mercury arrived at the scene near Bridgwater Train Station this afternoon to find at least ten police cars had surrounded the area.

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset police said: “Police are seeking two men who took off when the car they were in crashed into railing at Bridgwater station at around 11.45am.

“The incident is linked to an offence which occurred in Crediton, Devon, earlier today. They were spotted by officers in Bridgwater and failed to stop, going through a red light. They went into the railing within two minutes after that.

“There were no other vehicles involved and police are removing the vehicle, a silver Renault Megane.”

Dave Whillis, owner of Dave’s Diner, witnessed the scene unfold. He told the Mercury: “Three men aged between 18 to early 20’s got out of the car very quickly and ran off in different directions.

“One ran to the Station Cottages area, one to Wellington Road and the other to the Railway station. The one who went to the station later came back and ran to the back of St John Street.”

Sergeant Bob Muckett told the Mercury at the scene: “We’re making enquiries and we’ve managed to contain the area.

“We’re using police dogs in the containment area to search for three men, following an incident in the Devon and Cornwall area.”

Police are looking for white men in their teens or twenties. Anyone with information is asked to dial 999.
