UTV stolen from multi-world champion's farm in broad daylight #ruralcrime

A blue Mercedes estate vehicle reversed up to a trailer holding the blue electric Polaris, hitched it onto the car and sped off - narrowly avoiding two farm workers.

 

The incident happened at around 2:30pm on July 20 at a farm in Peasmarsh, East Sussex.

 

George Digweed - who has 26 clay pigeon shooting world titles and was honoured with an MBE in 2009 - has taken to Facebook in a plea to catch the thieves.

 

He posted: "This was stolen in broad daylight with two people within yards of where it was stolen who were emptying a barn of rape into a lorry.

 

"If anyone hears anything - please let me know.

 

"There have been many of these farm burglaries in the area and they must be stopped. They were caught on CCTV as well - so as soon as I have the footage I will post it.

 

"Please share with as many people as you can. I really appreciate your help."

 

 

A Sussex police spokesman said: "We are seeking to return an off-road vehicle, stolen from a rural property in Peasmarsh, to its rightful owner.

 

"The blue electric Polaris and its trailer were taken from the address in Wittersham Road at about 2.44pm on Thursday (20 July).

 

"A dark green or blue Mercedes E-class estate was seen to drive to the property, before making off with the buggy a short time later.

 

"If you have been offered an off-road vehicle fitting the description of the one stolen, or if you have any information about the incident, please report it online quoting serial 1123 of 20/07."
