A WIND turbine worth hundreds of pounds was stolen from a house in Stretham.
The turbine, made in Britain by a company called Rutland, was removed from the rear of a house in Green End, some time from 8pm to 7am between June 29 and the following day.
Although predominantly white, the turbine, capable of producing 60w of power, was also adorned in Union Jack stickers.
The turbines are worth in excess of £300, with the more advanced models retailing for more than £500.
The blades measure more than 50cm in diameter and they are commonly used to provide power for lights and other electrical equipment on small boats.
