Break-in at Great Dorset Steam Fair warehouse

Equipment used by the Great Dorset Steam Fair has been stolen from a warehouse.

Police said offenders broke into locked shipping containers in the warehouse at Tarrant Hinton near Blandford sometime during the first two weeks of November.

Equipment worth about £120,000 was taken, including iron fence stakes, brass taps and steel cabling.

Police said they were keen to hear from scrap dealers or anyone offered items for an unusually low price.

The five-day steam fair takes place in Tarrant Hinton each August and attracts about 250,000 visitors.
