A community building suffered 'extensive damage' in a burglary on a Sheffield estate.

The Darnall Tenants and Residents Association building in Greenland Court, Darnall, was damaged in a raid overnight on Monday, October 31 into Tuesday, November 1.

South Yorkshire Police said 'nothing of value' was taken but there was 'considerable damage' caused.

PC Mick Henderson said: “This building is used by the community group, who are primarily elderly local residents, as a meeting room and social centre.

"They also regularly raise money for charities from various activities at that location.

“It is very sad that the centre was damaged, considering it is a building for the local community.

“I’d really like to hear from anyone living locally who may have seen something suspicious, as we believe the suspects may have been in or around the building for some time given the damage caused.”

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
