In the past week, galvanised steel gates have been stolen from fields and premises in isolated areas of the villages.

It is sometimes difficult to effectively secure gates and they are often in the most rural of locations. However, we would advise owners to do as much as they can to make their gates less attractive to thieves, by painting a business name or post code on the property and using additional chains and locks to keep them secure.

If you have any information about the gate thefts or the sale of such gates for scrap metal contact PC Grant Buchanan at Loddon SNT on 0845 456 4567.
