Thieves stole 1,500 litres of diesel recently after taking a property’s security gates off their hinges.

Sussex Police say the offence took place on Wednesday March 1 at the home in Littleworth Lane, Partridge Green.

After removing the gates, the intruders went down the drive and hitched up to a fuel bowser (transportable tank) which contained diesel and drove away.
