YOBS responsible for a spate of thefts at railway stations are being hunted by detectives.

British Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for witnesses after ticket machines at Welham Green, Brookmans Park and Potters Bar were broken into overnight on April 2/3.

Detective constable Chris Brett said the thieves, who escaped with a small amount of cash, also damaged a phone box at Cuffley railway station.

"The damage caused was considerable and there was obviously disruption caused to many passengers," he said.

As part of the investigation, CCTV stills have been released.

Rail operator First Capital Connect (FCC) is offering a �2,500 reward for information leading to the capture of the offenders.
