THREE men have been arrested in connection with a spate of burglaries.

Officers swooped in on the travellers' site at Meadow Lane, Runwell at about 6am today where they recovered a number of items believed to have been snatched in burglaries.

They arrested three men in their late teens and early thirties on suspicion of burglary and causing criminal damage to police cars.

In recent weeks, a number of police cars have had their windows smashed when attending the site.

The men are being questioned by detectives at a police station in the county.
