Vintage steam engine stolen from Wiltshire farm

A vintage steam engine and truck have been stolen from a farm in Wiltshire.

The "mini" engine is thought to have been taken on Sunday between 10:00 and 12:00 GMT from a farm in Barford St Martin, near Salisbury, police said.

An appeal for the steam engine has been shared as far away as Leicestershire, where the rural police team urged enthusiasts to keep an eye out for the "incredibly unusual item".

Wiltshire Police said its enquiries were ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
