A 'large quantity' of donations set for food banks have been stolen from a Palgrave church.

Police issued an appeal for witnesses following the burglary that took place at St Peter's Church in the Green, in Palgrave, near Diss, on Sunday, September 26 between 3pm and 9pm. 

The items had been collected for the community's harvest festival, and were going to be donated to local food banks. 

But it later transpired fears the donations had been stolen was an "honest error", after it was discovered it had not been on Tuesday morning.
