Farm raid attempt

POLICE are keen to trace two men who were seen interfering with a shed containing a quad-bike at a farm near Alnwick on Tuesday.

The pair were spotted at around 10.55am in a Ford Escort-type van with silver foil on the rear windows, which drove into a farm at Newton on the Moor. Both were wearing army-type camouflage clothing.

However, they were disturbed by the occupier and drove off towards the A1. No registration was recorded for the vehicle.

The first man is described as being approximately 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build and with blonde hair, while the second was in his mid-20s with ginger hair. They had Yorkshire accents.

Anyone with information can contact Northumbria Police on 03456 043043 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

If you see any vehicles or people acting suspiciously, you should contact police immediately on 999.
