Police are seeking witnesses in connection with the theft, which happened at about 2.15pm on Friday, October 23 at a property on Church Lane in Oulton Broad.

The two items, along with the digger buckets, were stolen after thieves removed a large wooden gate from the property.

A police spokesman said: “The estimated value of the items stolen is in the region of £10,000.

“A large wooden gate that was padlocked was taken off its hinges in the process of the theft.

“The digger was moved away from the location on the stolen trailer pulled by an unknown vehicle.”

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour, has dashcam footage or any knowledge of either the current whereabouts of the digger or trailer should contact Lowestoft police, quoting crime reference 37/61726/20, on 101 or email Agnieszka.MANN2@suffolk.police.uk
