Thieves have stolen around £40,000 of LEGO Chima from a business park in Ainley Bottom.

Police officers have revealed that 16 pallets of the LEGO were taken from an articulated lorry at the business park in Elland, West Yorkshire.

The BBC reports that the theft took place between 5pm on Wednesday and 4am on Thursday.

Det Sgt Terry O'Keeffe has asked the public to be on the lookout for the stolen goods.

O'Keeffe said: "Physically moving such a large amount of LEGO is something that would have appeared out of the ordinary and I am appealing for anyone who saw this incident to get in touch.

"I would also urge people to be on the lookout for the stolen goods. LEGO is particularly topical at the moment with the film out and if you are offered something that is too good to be true then it usually is."
