JCB stolen in Grove solar farm break-in

A JCB telescopic forklift truck, solar panels and a "substantial amount" of copper wire have been stolen in a raid on a solar farm in Oxfordshire.

Tyre marks suggest three or four vehicles, including a truck, drove across fields to the facility, which is being built near the A417 at Grove.

Police said the perimeter fence was cut during the break-in, which happened on Sunday night or early on Monday.

The JCB was used to move the other stolen items, officers said.
