Thieves who stole temporary cold room 'may have thought it was bouncy castle'

Thieves have stolen a bespoke temporary cold room from a Clacton buisiness. The inlfatable structure may have been mistaken for a bouncy castle

Thieves have stolen a bespoke temporary cold room, along with its refrigeration equipment, from a business in Clacton. According to the East Anglian Daily Press, the owner, Atlantic, now believes that the inflatable ‘cooling tent’  used for chilling drinks and food at events, could have been mistaken for a bouncy castle by the thieves, and has since been abandoned.

The tent, which inflates to 10 m by 6 m, and its associated refrigeration equipment is valued at a five-figure sum.

Atlantic’s Anthony Hill told the EDP: “This is a custom-made unit which is a large tent and cooling equipment that can be used for a wide range of applications. We believe it could have been taken by someone who thought it was a bouncy castle. But if they blew it up in a back garden and realised just how big it is they might want to get rid of it.”

Clacton police have issued a photograph of the inflated tent and have appealed for help in recovering it. Anyone with any information should contact Clacton police station on 101.
