Humberside Police are investigating the theft of maintenance equipment from a village cricket club.

Between 11am on Sunday 15 September to 5pm on Monday 16 September unknown offenders broke into Beeford Cricket Club, using an angle grinder to break through a security fence housing a metal storage container.

A spokeswoman for Humberside Police said: “Behind the pavilion of Beeford Cricket Club is a metal storage container which is surrounded by security fencing. They used an angle grinder to cut through the sliding bolt and metal shroud around the padlock to gain entry.”

Items stolen from inside the container included A Scarifier - SISI Rotar Rake - for turf management larger unity, a red Petrol lawnmower of an Australian make, a Balmoral petrol lawnmower green, a five Kilowatt Petrol generator, a Honda 4 Stroke Strimmer and an orange toolbax containing various spanners and other hand tools.
