Have your say

A MAN will appear in court after witnesses reported suspicious activity in Gosberton.

Joe Alexander Heath (19), of Lowfield Lane, Balderton, Newark, has been charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow and will appear before Spalding magistrates on Thursday, October 11.

Two members of the public notified police on Thursday morning, claiming they had seen items of scrap being removed from a garden and put in a van.

A 17-year-old youth who was arrested at the same time was released without further police action.

The van is alleged to have been running on illegal agricultural diesel.

HM Revenue & Customs were notified and police say the vehicle was seized.
