Police are warning Lincolsnhire farmers to step up security following a rise in tractor thefts.

The warning follows a spike in tractor thefts in some parts of the UK.

PCSO Robert Childs said farmers should review their security measures because Lincolnshire could also be targeted.

He said: “There has been a spike in tractor thefts across parts of the UK.

“Past experience has shown that we can expect to see an upturn in tractor thefts in Lincolnshire.

“The current trend has been for mid range rather than high end tractors to be taken.”
