Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a quantity of scrap metal and a trailer were stolen from the rear compound of a business in Upton.

The incident happened at a business along Factory Road on the Upton Industrial Estate. The offenders forced entry to the rear of the property by cutting wire mesh fencing.

It is believe that the offenders loaded a large quantity of scrap metal onto a flat-bed trailer which also belonged to the business. Some tarpaulin from a neighbouring address was possibly used to cover the load of the trailer.

A manufacture’s picture of the type of trailer taken is shown- The stolen trailer is not new anymore and looks more weathered than the one in the picture!

Has anyone been offered scrap metal or such a trailer in unusual circumstances.
