CCTV images have been released of raiders who stole machinery worth about £100,000 from an industrial estate in Lincolnshire.

Police said the theft happened at RPC Containers on Gallamore Lane, in Market Rasen, at about 16:30 BST on 1 October.

The offenders stole an injection mould machine using a 4x4 car, which they backed into a garage at the site.

Owners of the factory are offering a £1,000 reward to anyone with information leading to a conviction.

They said the return of the machine was vital for the completion of a current contract, which is worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The machinery, which weighs about a tonne (1,000kg), shapes plastic containers.

Lincolnshire police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
