There's concern someone is stealing dogs on Portland.

A number of people have contacted Wessex FM over the issue.

It's alleged a person in a white van has been preying on people's pets near the Tesco's car park on Weston Road.

Dorset Police says they're not aware of any thefts and hasn't received any reports from the public recently.

Dog owner Jackie Priest lives on Portland and is worried for her 2 dogs; "A lot of people walk their dogs near Weston it's a very popular area. It would only take a split second to take one, people must be careful. I'm frightened to let my dogs out of my sight, you just never know."

Anyone affected is encouraged to contact Weymouth and Portland Police Sergeant Want on 101 quoting badge number 1824.
