A trailer containing £20,000 of biscuits has been stolen from a factory in south Wales.

Thieves took the trailer from Burton’s Food Ltd in Cwmbran, Torfaen, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

It was later found empty in Warrington, Cheshire.

Well-known treats such as Wagon Wheels and Jammie Dodgers are produced by the company.
