Burglars target luxury flat
A LUXURY flat in Portishead was raided by thieves who police believe were opportunist burglars.
Residents of the Centre Quay apartment block in Lower Burlington Road are being warned to be vigilant following the incident on Friday.
Burglars managed to get through a secure entrance of the building some time between 11.30am-3.50pm before getting into a flat.
They stole various items include a TV, computer and baggage.
Police believe the intruders may have followed another vehicle into the secure car parking area and gained entry through a communal security door.
