Police are searching for two men following a break in at a Sikh temple in Seven Kings.

Two men are reported to have broken in to Gurdwara Singh Sabha, in High Road, at around 2am this morning.

CCTV footage seen by the temple’s staff reportedly shows two men breaking a window near the temple’s washing room and entering the building.

They are later seen attempting to take money from a collection box known as a “Golak” where passersby can leave donations.

It has not yet been determined if any money was stolen.

Balbir Singh, treasurer, said: “Fortunately, it seems that this time we may have gotten off lightly.”

The last time the temple was broken into was six years ago.

Police were called to the scene at approximately 5.40am. They have made no arrests and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information or who witnessed the attack should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
