Camera collectors and retailers have been asked to be on the lookout for offers of cheap Leica camera gear after a leading UK camera dealership was burgled.

Ffordes Photographic, based near Inverness in Scotland and a large quantity of Leica film and digital cameras, lenses and accessories were stolen.

The break-in happened on Wednesday morning (26 September) and Ffordes manager Alister Bowie said he believed the Leica items were specifically targeted.
