'Distinctive' bales of hay stolen from Cumbria farm

Farmers have been warned to be on their guard following the theft of hay in Cumbria.

About 50 bales were taken from a farm in the Kirkby Thore area overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.

They were easily identifiable because the owner had sprayed bright blue markings on the green plastic wrapping.

Anyone who saw suspicious activity on the Kirkby Thore to Long Marton road, or who has been offered hay for sale, is asked to contact Cumbria Police.
