Nursery manager Amy Jasiewicz said: "It's very low of whoever has done this, stealing toys from children.

"We've not told the kids as we don't want to get them upset or worry them.

"He's not taken masses of things but it's the principle. The kids loved the plastic picnic bench during the summer and the bikes, too."
