In the early hours of Wednesday, July 12, police attended the scene of a burglary at Dalton Avenue, Lynemouth.

Following a thorough enquiry Michael Clamp, age 33 and John Clamp, 34, have now been charged with burglary and will be remanded in custody until they appear at Newcastle Magistrates on 11 August.

As the investigation progressed, two further arrests, for a man age 28 and a woman, also age 28, were made for handling stolen goods. Both have now been released under investigation.

Neighbourhood Inspector, Sue Fryer said: “We understand that there has been some concern in the community following the incident. We would ask residents to come together at this time, report any issues to police and not take the law into their own hands. We remain committed to helping people feel safe and secure as they go about their lives and we will swiftly deal with any incidents of burglary.”
