Police are appealing for information following a burglary in South Marston, Swindon.

At approximately 10.30pm on August 18, Inter Haul in Hunts Rise, was broken into.

“The vehicle stolen in this incident was an Inter Haul lorry and double story trailer with the registration CF18 BVB.

“Our enquiries are ongoing and we would urge anyone with information to call us on 101 and quote crime reference number 54190081760.”
