Thieves have stolen two powerboats from a sailing club.

Sometime between 4.30pm on Saturday, August 31 and 6.40am the next day, thieves broke into the Errwood Reservoir Sailing Club on Sandy Lane, off Long Hill, Buxton.

They cut through several padlocks to gain access to the site and then broke into a wooden shed and metal shipping containers.

They took a Sea Pro Rib boat with red inflatable tubes and white hull. It was fitted with a Mercury Marine engine. The boat was on a single axle steel trailer with blue and white painted rollers, which was also stolen.

An inflatable red Quicksilver boat was also taken.
