Police Recover Machinery Within Hours Of Theft From Billesdon

Police recovered plant equipment worth thousands of pounds within 24 hours of it being stolen from a building site in Billesdon. Enquiries led officers to remote farmland in South Nottinghamshire, where the dumper truck and mini-digger had been left by the thieves, along with a stolen van used to transport them away.

A car thought to have been involved in the theft was also found, together with a quantity of copper telecommunications cable and transformers belonging to Openreach,  also believed to have been stolen. The machinery, vehicles and other items were recovered by officers and are being forensically examined for clues as to who was responsible for the theft, which happened in the early hours of Monday.
