The theft took place during a flock turnaround meaning the site wasn’t being as closely monitored as usual, farmer Tom Craven told Lincolnshire Live.

Thieves took solar panels and inverters, which were worth more than £70,000, he added.

Lincolnshire Police said: “We are appealing for information after the theft of 220 solar panels and two high-value inverters.

“The theft took place on Midville Lane in Stickney on 16 November.

“If you have any information to assist our enquiry, or you saw any suspicious activity in the area, please get in touch.”
