POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information after a gas bottle safety cage was stolen from a farm in Abbotts Ann.

Sometime between 4pm on Tuesday, 20 November and 8.30am on Thursday, 22 November, the cage was stolen from outside an industrial unit at a farm in Salisbury Road.

Pc Tom Kingston, from the Andover targeted patrol team, said: “The cage is around 7ft by 5ft and would have required a large vehicle to move it.

“I would also like to remind people to review their security arrangements and make sure locks are secure and lights are in working order.

“Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to us.”

Anyone with any information should contact Pc Kingston at Andover police station on 101 or call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
