At around 02.30 hrs this morning (4/8/20) unknown offenders stole a Schaffer 3045 agricultural loader from a farm in Warton.
It was then driven up to Orton on the Hill and then down Orton Lane, into Austrey onto Main Road, then into Cinders Lane, then Warton Lane.
It ran out of fuel on Warton Lane in Austrey and the offenders then made off.
If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area or have any information that could help us with our enquiries, including possible CCTV footage please call us on 101 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to inc 51 of 4/8/20.
We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to the farmers who helped recover and provide vehicles to move the loader from the highway.
