Four off-road motorbikes were stolen and loaded into a van after thieves burgled a property in Witney.

The house in Burwell Meadow was broken into overnight on Friday after offenders gained access from Burwell Meadow recreation ground.

They stole four off-road Yamaha bikes, which are believed to have been loaded into a large van-type vehicle.

The vehicle would have been parked on the playing fields during the burglary.
