POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING the circumstances surrounding a robbery which saw 12 vintage tractors stolen from a property in Co Down.

The PSNI believe the vehicles were stolen from outbuildings at the property in Carryduff between 10am last Wednesday and 4.30pm the following afternoon.

Also stolen were a low-loading trailer and a power washer.

The tractors, which are described as being of 'great sentimental value' include 10 Massey Fergusons, an orange Nutfield Universal, and a blue Dexta.

All 10 Massey Fergusons are red in colour with a grey chassis. Two of them have cabs.

A PSNI spokesman said the force is keen to hear from anyone who might be offered the machines in suspicious circumstances, or anyone who either has information regarding the matter or who saw unusual activity on the Killynure Road in Carryduff on Wednesdy or Thursday.
