A Suffolk conservationist has said he might not be able to continue with a wildlife preservation project after thieves stole his agricultural vehicles worth £8,000.
Robert Crozier had been working on creating an orchard and planting woods on a six-and-a-half-acre site at Badley, between Stowmarket and Needham Market, but arrived on Saturday morning to find a tractor, trailer and mower being used for the work had been stolen.
He said: “I am developing a conservation area, which involves planting some trees for woodland and creating an orchard.
“I have got a couple of people who come down, including a beekeeper, but now these thieves have stolen all my equipment and if I don’t get them back, which I probably won’t, I might have to stop the work.
“I am looking for any help I can to get them back,” Mr Crozier said.
