Probe over stolen potato crops

Police are investigating the theft of 1.5 tonnes of potatoes from a field.

The incident happened in a field near Basin Road in Outwell, Norfolk, between 10pm on Sunday and 9am on Monday.

The thieves dug up a section of the field measuring about an eighth of an acre and stole the immature crop.

It comes three weeks after about 500 potatoes were dug up and stolen from a field near Hall Road in the same village.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "It is as yet unclear whether the two crimes are linked or if another gang of spud thieves are chipping in."
