POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a suspected distraction burglary at a garden centre in Salisbury.

The incident took place at Golden Acres Nursery, Southampton Road at about 3.30pm on April 3.

A man and woman entered the garden centre, selected a barbecue valued at £480 and paid for it in cash.

After the couple left the till was found to be £120 short.
