THIEVES who made off with milk delivered for young children have been branded "disgusting" and "selfish."

Wrexham Town Inspector Luke Hughes confirmed his officers were made aware of milk thefts at two nursery groups in Stansty Road on Monday.

He branded the offences "such selfish behaviour," but said CCTV enquiries had been undertaken and two males are currently being sought in connection with the thefts.

Gemma Allen, manager of Meithrin Mwy Plas Coch, said: "This has been happening for weeks.

"The milk taken on Monday was a good few days' worth - ten bottles this time.

"Last week only two bottles were missing but the week before that they were all taken.

"I've had to go out and get some and we've been lucky as well because we've been able to borrow some from the school.

"I've been in touch with the company that delivers is and changed where it's left, but it's still being taken.

"I don't know what more we can do.

"It's just disgusting - stealing from children.

"You wouldn't go up to a child and steal their drink, so why would anyone do this?"

The nursery group, which is based at Ysgol Plas Coch, has up to 24 children aged three to four.

Nearby Playland Day Nursery was also targeted on Monday, with eight two-litre bottles being taken.

Manager Jacqueline Ryan said: "That was supposed to last for three days.

"And it's the second time it's happened to us.

"It doesn't amount to a hill of beans - the milk they've had from us and Ysgol Plas Coch is probably worth £25 to £30 between us.

"But it's the inconvenience of having to go out and buy more.

"Plus none of us feel very comfortable when someone has been on our property."

She called for the community to be alert, adding: "They're not going to get it again."
