THIEVES have left workers bemused after they stole up to £300 of specialist equipment from a charity.

The Outward Bound Trust, which helps young people to fly, had its new hangars broken into, with the most notable theft being of a £200 logger.

But the incident has left the charity’s leaders confused rather than angry, with them asking one question: who on earth would want a bit of kit which records the length of a flight?

Chief instructor Mike Clark said: “Why they should take a logger I have no idea. It is an instrument only of use to glider pilots so that they can prove their time and height in an unpowered aircraft.”

The rest of the hangar had been thoroughly searched by the thieves but nothing else of value was taken.
