Police in Rushden are appealing for witnesses following the theft of expensive farm machinery.
Two high-value Kubota diggers were hired from Woodford Tool and Plant Hire near Daventry on March 3, and were stored by the hirer next to the derelict petrol station in The High Street, Rushden.
They were due to be collected by the hire company a week later from this location, but disappeared in the meantime - probably on Saturday, March 8. One of the diggers is black and orange, the other white and orange.
Witnesses, or anyone with information, should contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
