At around 1.20pm a burgundy Ifor Williams HB510R Horse Trailer, serial number 400000Y0284940, draw bar number Y42706, was stolen from farm premises in Crowborough. At around 2pm it was seen attached to a black BMW saloon going through Hadlow Down, the witness believes that the BMW was on a 08 plate. A witness reports seeing the same car at the premises earlier in the week. This Trailer is also Data tagged and bears two numbers (1) D C 00078036 and (2) 000181DE7B. With the Data tag it makes it very hot to handle, so please keep an eye out in case it gets dumped.
