“This alert is to respectfully serve as a reminder - it is worth purchasing a tracker for your farm/agricultural vehicle. We were able to initially make a link to an area.

“If you have purchased a tracker, please ensure that it is activated and regularly charged in the event of a theft to maximise our opportunities of recovery and identifying the offender(s)

“Land Rover Defenders and quad bikes are still being targeted by thieves. Please continue to think about security, considering good locks, CCTV, trackers, adequate lighting, alarms etcetera and also please keep reporting suspicious visitors to your farm premises or in the general area.”
