Formby shocked as Henrik Stenson's rented house burgled during 1st round!

NOT good publicity for the area! As a top Swedish golfer was playing at The Open, the house he is staying in was burgled. Golfers and their families commonly stay in rented homes rather than Hotels at majors and the World Number 8, Henrik Stenson had chosen to to rent accommodation in Formby. Formby is well known for being safe and locals are shocked to hear the news about the defending champion's burglary. We are told that the thieves steal cash, clothes, watches and cards. Luckily the famous Claret Jug, which he won at The Open in 2016, was not stolen as it had already been set to Royal Birkdale. We are told that Police were called to a property, on Freshfield Road, Formby at around 5pm, but it is initially believed that the house was burgled some time between midday and 2.45pm.

Merseyside Police has launched an investigation and Detective Inspector Simon Vaughan said:- "We are determined to identify those responsible and as with every burglary victim, we are carrying out a thorough investigation, offering reassurance and crime prevention advice. The Hugo Boss clothing taken is very personal to the victim and can be identified by a distinctive NetJets sponsorship logo, so if anyone is offered such clothing, please contact us immediately. If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the Freshfield Road area between these times, please call us. Any small detail could be vital to the investigation."

Anyone with information is asked to call:- 101 quoting the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on:- 0800 555 111 or go online.
