Thieves have stolen a mini-digger from a business in Matlock.

Sometime between 4.30pm on Tuesday and 8.30am on Wednesday, offenders broke into Balfour Beatty, on Bakewell Road, opposite Whitworth Hospital, and made off with the vehicle.

A spokesman for Derbyshire police said: “They knocked down a wall to get into the building site and stole the mini-digger.

“It looks like it was then loaded on to another vehicle as tracks can be seen leading on to the main road.”

Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
