Fuel stolen in council depot break-in
CROOKS have stolen fuel from a council depot in Colchester.
Vehicle fuel was taken from the Colchester Council site in Shrub End overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday last week.
The thieves cut a hole in the fence at the site, which is next to the county council-run recycling centre in Maldon Road.
Chris Dowsing, recycling and fleet group manager at Colchester Council, said: "We have had CCTV installed at the site so we are hopeful the footage will provide positive leads on the offenders.
"Since the break-in we have also increased security at the depot to prevent any further thefts.
"We would urge anyone with any information on this incident to contact Essex Police."
- Anyone with information should call police on 101
