Sometime between midnight and 7.30am yesterday, three trailers and the digger were stolen from Premier Paving and Landscaping, situated at the Charles Burrell Centre in Staniforth Road.

The suspect(s) forced their way into the area by using an angle grinder on the fencing, before driving a vehicle through, and towing the equipment away.
