Calderdale police are warning farmers and owners of isolated buildings to take care after a spate of burglaries.

The Calder Valley Neighbourhood Policing team has issued advice after out buildings at isolated farms and dwellings in the Ripponden, Luddendenfoot and Hebden Bridge were targeted over the last seven days.

Crime Prevention Officers Jill Pilling and Tracy Pritchard have been out and about marking farm equipment so if any is stolen, if/when property is recovered it is easily identifiable.
