Police have made five arrests following a break-in at a Chorley Catholic club.

Around £270 worth of alcohol was stolen in the raid at St Joseph’s Parish Centre, Harpers Lane, Chorley.

The haul included spirits and beer.

A cash box, value of the contents unknown, was also taken.

The raiders gained entry to the premises after smashing a window with a stone.

A member of the public raised the alarm, said police.

The five people arrested have all been bailed. The raid took place in the early hours of Wednesday.

A popular social and function venue, St Joseph’s Parish Centre re-opened after being fully rebuilt in 2001.

It has a games room with two full size snooker tables, a pool table, darts, dominoes and a large screen TV.

The purpose-built facility’s two large car parks are monitored 24 hours a day by CCTV.
