Police appeal after quad bike stolen in Skipton burglary

North Yorkshire Police is investigating a spate of burglaries in the Skipton area including the theft of a distinctive quad bike from a farm.

The red Honda 250-TMZ, a 2007 model without a registration number, has a broken front right spring and cracked rear mudguards.

It was taken from a farm near Bradley during the early hours of Monday (9th January) when an outbuilding was forced open. The suspects also made off with machine tools.

Another burglary was reported at a farm near the A59 Harrogate Road just before 8am on Monday.

A JCB digger was damaged during an attempt to steal a quad bike. The suspects made off with a Milwaukee chainsaw at around 5.30am.

At this stage, it is not known if the incidents are linked.
