Massive gates fronting a home in East Cambridgeshire were stolen last night.
The shocked homeowner says they have reported the theft to police but have told neighbours they’re “not expecting to ever see our gates again”.
She added: “All I can say is I hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else.”
Littleport was also targeted as millions stayed glued to the television watching England win through to the final of Euro 2020.
Brazen thieves made off with a car battery.
However, in this instance the victims have a clue with CCTV footage showing the theft.
A white van used by the thieves has been shared across social media.
