Ford truck found dumped in the middle of muddy South Derbyshire field

A pick-up truck has been found abandoned in a muddy field in South Derbyshire. Swadlincote Police safer neighbourhood team posted their discovery of the silver Ford Ranger Thunder on the unit’s Facebook page after it was found in the middle of a field in Hartshorne. Its wheels were partially buried in the mud and the 4×4 vehicle was caked in mud, they said.

While the truck is now being forensically examined, police say they are certain it was used for criminal activity. A farmer and his tractor had to called in to drag the truck out of the mud. A post from the unit’s Facebook page read: “Vehicle found stuck in the middle of field in Hartshorne, one guess what they were up to.

“With help from the farmer and his tractor now on the back of a recovery truck awaiting forensic examination.”
