Officers are appealing for information following a burglary at a farm near Wentworth in Cambridgeshire.

Between 6pm on Saturday and 8am on Sunday (October 8) unknown offenders gained entry to the Manor Farm premises in Church Road.

A Kubota ATV vehicle and gardening equipment were removed, along with meat from freezers worth £100.

During the incident the electricity supply to the site was tripped, meaning additional frozen meat worth an estimated £4,000 was spoilt.

PC Matty Bage said: “I’d urge anyone who has seen the stolen vehicle to contact police as a matter of urgency. We’re also appealing to anyone who has been offered meat or gardening equipment for sale by cold callers to get in touch.”
