Public warned to be on alert after satchel containing explosives stolen
POLICE are asking members of the public to be alert after a satchel containing small explosive charges was stolen from a car in Sutton-in-Ashfield.
It is not thought that the thieves were aware that the charges, which are used in the railway industry, were in the bag when they broke into the grey Vauxhall Astra in Bramley Court some time between 12.30am and 1.30am on Saturday morning.
A sat-nav system and the car's stereo were also stolen.
The explosives are small yellow discs kept in a red plastic canister with the word "explosives" printed on it. If detonated, they could cause a serious injury to anyone who is handling them.
