POLICE have appealed for information after an attempted break-in during the early hours of yesterday (Tues) morning, at a well-known American style restaurant, situated just outside Kingsclere.

According to Hampshire Constabulary, the incident took place at Nelson’s Diner, off the A339, sometime between 1.04am and 1.12am yesterday (Tuesday, August 30).

Three people wearing dark clothing were seen to smash a side window of the diner before attempting to force open a side door.

The three people then left in a Subaru Impreza estate vehicle. Entry to the restaurant was not gained and nothing was taken.

Investigating officer PC Stuart Bond said: “I’d like to hear from anyone who may have been passing or in the area at the time that may have seen a Subaru Impreza estate vehicle, or who may have captured any images of it on a dash cam.

“This is a busy stretch of road throughout the night and I would encourage passing motorists or customers of the nearby petrol station to contact the police should they see any suspicious activity at the site.”

Anyone with information is asked to telephone the police non emergency number,  101 quoting 44160325485.

    Nice little place popular with car enthusiasts. Great food and a great vibe. No idea why anyone would break in, there isn't anything of real value. You can't rob character...
