Thieves have stolen 40 GPS tractor kits from farms across East Anglia and Hertfordshire in an organised crime wave estimated to have cost farmers about £500,000.
Thefts of high-tech global positioning system (GPS) equipment were reported on 7 September in Norfolk, Suffolk and neighbouring Hertfordshire.
Norfolk-based farm manager Andrew Francis, who runs the 9,100-hectare Elveden estate, raised the alarm on social media after he was targeted.
