A piece of brewing equipment worth up to £1,000 has been stolen in a burglary at a farm in Alford.

The theft took place overnight between November 7 and 8 at the farm in Station Road and the offenders smashed a padlock to get into an outbuilding.

The stolen mash tun is similar to the picture but of smaller size (approx 2’ x 2’) and is handmade from stainless steel. It is worth up to £1000.

The thieves also took powertools and rolls of copper wiring.

When fleeing the scene the offenders removed a kissing gate from its hinges and made off via an adjacent public footpath.

Anyone with information should contact PC Zara Springall on 101 quoting incident 115 of November 8.
