POLICE are appealing for information after meat was stolen from a freezer unit in Barton just before Christmas.

Lamb carcasses, beef cuts including fillet, rib and sirloin and free range turkeys were stolen along with butchering knives.

The theft took place at a farm in New Road at 8pm on December 22.

A green Land Rover Discovery was driven onto the farm and the offenders have cut the padlock off a portable cabin-sized freezer unit and stole the meat, worth more than �2,000.

The offenders were disturbed at around 8.50pm and drove off at speed towards the A603.

Detective Constable Julie Munday, who is investigating, said: "I would like to speak to anyone who either saw this green Land Rover in the area of the farm that day, or anyone who has recently been offered any meat at a price which seemed too good to be true."
