The crooks gained access to the porch area behind the gate of the main entrance and wrecked the frame, breaking the covering acrylic shatter-proof glass.

A spokesman said: “During what appeared to be the attempted theft of a Hunger Games: Mockingjay poster, the metal frame was bent and the Plexiglass was smashed, causing £200 worth of damage. The poster was destroyed in the process.”
