A van and trailer has been stolen in a burglary in East Coker.

The burglary occurred overnight between Wednesday, January 15 and Thursday, January 16 at a rural property in Skinners Hill.

Keys for a green Ford Transit were stolen and the vehicle itself taken along with a trailer.

The Ford Transit is a flat-bed model with a single cab and a drop-side rear.

It is distinctive because of its dark-green colour and a large scratch down the left side of the bodywork. It also has steps at the rear with yellow handles.

The trailer is a twin-axle Ifor Williams make with a fold-up ramp at the rear. 

Anyone who saw the vehicle being driven from the area, has been offered the stolen property for sale or knows who is responsible should contact police on 101 and quote 5255/14.
