Officers are appealing for witnesses after designer dresses were reported stolen from a lorry in Gravesend.

The theft is believed to have happened between the times of 10pm on Wednesday January 17 and 5am on Thursday January 18.

A car was reported to have been seen near the lorry at 2am on Thursday January 18.

Around 1,400 identical dresses were reported stolen from the lorry while it was parked in an Asda car park in Imperial Retail Park in Thames Way, Gravesend.

The knee length dress is a one off design to be sold by the company Oliver Bonus, and is described as navy in colour with a ‘dobby’ print.

The print is characterised by a small geometric white and grey pattern, with extra texture in the material.

There is a tied sash belt around the dress which is in the same material and pattern as the dress.

To secure the dress at the back there are three small buttons in the middle and two more buttons at the top.

The dresses come in size six to 18, and the product code is 011558670 - this can be found in the car label and swing ticket.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Kent Police on 01474 366 149 quoting crime reference number XY/003303/18.

Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
