SHOCKING figures reveal more quad bikes were stolen in Cumbria last year than anywhere else in the country.
The county saw 34 quad thefts last year, with many more, it was claimed, going unreported.
NFU Mutual said the surge in quad and ATV thefts was fuelled by determined criminal gangs cashing in the high demand.
"We know each and every one of those incidents in Cumbria would have had a huge impact on the victim and disrupted their farming.
As I said, there could be more for the county but this is the total reported to us," said Rebecca Davison, Rural Affairs Specialist with NFU Mutual.
