PC Thomas Rettie of Lancashire Police said: “We would appeal to anyone who has been approached to buy any electronic equipment in the past week or anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around Currys PC World at the time of the break in or in the hours leading up to it to please get in touch.”

Some of the stolen equipment, including laptops, speakers, microphones and headphones, have since been recovered after they were found in a nearby wheelie bin.

However, several items are still thought to be outstanding.
