Thieves have snatched around 180 solar panels from a field in Newton.

The culprits struck between 8pm on Wednesday April 13 and 7.15am on Thursday 14 in High Road.

PC Carl Stoppard said: “A large vehicle would have been required to move the panels and it’s likely it would have taken a few hours to remove them.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and noticed anything suspicious to contact police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111 or via the Crimestoppers website,
