Police are appealing for information following a spate of burglaries at farms in Shropshire.
Officers said there have been at least seven linked burglaries or attempted burglaries at farms around the Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth area.
The incidents happened between Thursday, April 6, and Friday, April 7, at farms in Shipton, Morville, Weston, Middleton Priors and Upton Cressett.
Items taken from the properties include a red Honda quad bike, a green Suzuki quad bike, two electric bicycles and various power tools.
At a farm in Middleton Priors, police say the offenders cause "considerable damage" to crops after they used a vehicle to cross a field to gain access to the farm.
