But the awoke to find that their Ford Ranger truck, a Mercedes A-Class, an Ivor Williams flat bed trailer and a John Deere gator had all been taken from the farm.

The farm owners also reported that all of their equipment and tools were stolen in the raid.

In a statement the family said: “It has devastated us. We are a hard working family and what words can you say to describe the distress this act of theft brings to us as a family. There is not much chance of recovery of the things wrenched away from us but it is certainly worth a try.

County Times:

“I have two teenage children who have found this particularly difficult to understand and comprehend that someone would do this to us.

“The police have been exceptional with the support give on the day and days afterwards and we thank them for there support.

“We are sharing our story to make it difficult for these lowlifes to exist. To other people a neighbours and people out there, we hope to make it as awkward as possible for them, even if it means for you too.

“It's all about causing them time which they don't have when committing this atrocious act.

“Our lives and attitude have certainly been changed forever and we will certainly be upgrading our security systems.”
