POLICE investigating the disappearance of equipment from a bowling green in South Tyneside are now saying no crime has been committed.

On Wednesday last week, police were called to the bowling green in North Marine Park, Lawe Road, South Shields, after bags belonging to two pensioners disappeared.

The bags had been put on the ground outside buildings near the bowling green when they went missing between 5.15pm and 6pm.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “The bags thought to have been stolen have since been found at the club. No crime has been committed.”
