Thieves target rural farm twice



Have your say

Humberside Police are investigating the theft of a cattle trailer in Lockington.

The Ifor Williams 14ft cattle trailer, serial number 7-25725 was stolen overnight on Thursday 6 March 2 at a farm off Station Road in the village.

The trailer was stored behind secure gates

A spokeswoman for Humberside Police said: “Unsuccessful attempts were made to cut the heavy duty lock off the gates so they forced the gates off their hinges instead. Once entry was gained to the yard they siphoned diesel from a fuel tank on site and stole the cattle trailer.

“The owner had a similar trailer stolen from the farm at the beginning of last month and was taking measures to make the location more secure when this theft occurred.”

If you have any information on the theft please contact the police and quote crime reference CS/2030787.
