Police have released CCTV to help identify six burglars who stole chainsaws from a farm near Crawley,

Ten Echo chainsaws were stolen during a break-in at Tulleys Farm on Turners Hill Road, Crawley, a spokesperson said.

Six men broke into the property at around 10pm on Thursday, 9 February.

The spokesperson said: “They had a good look around the site before making off with the chainsaws which are estimated to be worth a total of £2,000.”

CCTV shows the men, all of who had their faces covered and were wearing gloves.

“Although this makes it difficult to identify those responsible we are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw anyone acting suspiciously,” the spokesperson said.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have recently been offered Echo chainsaws for sale, potentially at a reduced cost.”
