Police are appealing for information on behalf of a Scottish force after two dumper trucks were stolen in Scotland and brought into Northumberland.

On Thursday, May 10, two 35-tonne Volvo dumper trucks were stolen from an opencast site in Crossgates, Fife.

Officers from Fife Constabulary know that the dumper trucks were stolen on two low-loader trailers and then travelled in convoy southbound heading onto the A1 towards Berwick.

Police believe that the two dumper trucks may have headed into the Northumbria Police area.

The two low-loaders carrying the Volvo A30 dump trucks were red and white and the site of the vehicles being driven down the A1 would have been fairly noticeable.

Anyone who may have seen the two dumpers being transported or have any information into their whereabouts should contact Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
