A TOY store in Didcot has closed permanently following a burglary last month.

Toys UK, in Broadway, has announced the store is now closed after a van full of toys, mainly Lego, was taken on Saturday, November 19.

Police have launched an appeal for witnesses of the burglary which took place between 3.30 and 4am.

In a poster left in the stores window, it says: “We regret to advise that this store is now closed. You can still contact us on: sales@toys-uk.co.uk or visit us online at toys-uk.co.uk.

“Thank you for your support over the years, we will miss you all.”
