An all-terrain agricultural vehicle has been stolen from a farm in Holbeach St Johns.

The John Deer Gator XUV 550D vehicle and two tractor batteries was stolen between 8am last Tuesday and 5am the next day.

Police said the vehicle is eight feet by four feet wide, with green and yellow wheels and a body on the back to carry goods.

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 53 of September 30.

Meanwhile, police are warning farmers and landowners of rogue traders after a man called at a farm in Spalding selling goods on Wedneday.

Police have received reports of an ongoing scam where rogue traders visit farms, sports clubs and small businesses offering to resurface car parks and driveways with gravel left over from work they claim to have carried out for the council.

The work is offered at £50 but once the job is done, the price is put up massively, followed by threats of violence.

If any uninvited rogue trader calls at your farm or business, call 101 or 999, quoting incident number 72 of September 30.
