Stolen farm equipment worth around £500,000 has been recovered across Shropshire, thanks to the help of the public.
Earlier this month two tractors worth a combined total of £230,000 were recovered by two police officers, following information given to them by the public.
Since then a further two tractors, a pick-up truck, a JCB digger and a bowser containing 2,000 litres of fuel have been recovered and returned to their owners.
These thefts have been happening across Shropshire over the past several months with the offenders dumping the equipment near the location it was taken from.
