AN ICONIC Malvern-based company has praised police after two people have been charged after valuable watches were stolen.

The Morgan Motor Company recently had £6000 worth of watches stolen.

Two people were later arrested and charged by Malvern police.

The watches were stolen from the Morgan Motor Company's factory on Pickersleigh Road.

A spokesperson for Morgan Motor Company said: "We would like to place on record our gratitude to the police for their quick and thorough action when dealing with this crime, they’ve done everything they can do to help and we are most grateful."

The business declined to comment further on the thefts.
