£16,000 of tyres stolen from the back of a truck in Kirk Smeaton.

Between 85 and 100 Pirelli tyres worth over £16,000 were stolen.

Two different sizes of tyre, worth between £200 and £400 each, were taken – 17inch which are commonly used on saloon cars such as Volkswagen Passats and Skoda Octavias and 19inch tyres which are used on Range Rovers and other 4×4 vehicles.

Officers believe that a large vehicle must have pulled up alongside the Slovakian HGV to carry out the theft and are appealing for anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area at the time of the incident to come forward.
