Security warning after Surrey machinery thefts

Builders have been urged to increase security measures after thousands of pounds worth of machinery was stolen.

Surrey Police said in the most recent incident a tractor and a cement mixer were taken from a house in Frensham.

A 4x4 vehicle and a mini digger worth £8,000 were stolen from Chiddingfold and an excavator and a dumper worth £20,000 were also taken from Ash Vale.

The force suggests equipment left on site should be chained and fitted with anti-theft devices.
