Police have received two separate reports from the last two days of shed being forcibly entered and keys for forklifts being stolen.

North Yorkshire Police Sergeant for Ryedale Paul Gibson-Hodges, said: "One was in the Weaverthorpe area and one in the Warthill area.

"Can I request everyone remove their vehicle keys and valuables when leaving the vehicle alone.

"Can I also request if you see anyone or vehicles acting suspiciously in your area or on your land, to notify the police so we can task officers to attend and identify the relevant parties and confirm they are acting lawfully."
