Gangs blamed for wave of boat crime on east coast

Criminal gangs are believed to be responsible for a series of boat and engine thefts in Essex and Suffolk.

Last year in Essex alone items valued at nearly half a million pounds were stolen.

It is believed that many of the engines end up abroad. One stolen from Aldeburgh in Suffolk was later traced to Lithuania.
