A farm has been targeted by thieves for the second time in two weeks.

In the latest raid at Water End Farm in Epping Road, Ongar, items valued at up to £15,000 were stolen.

On Friday evening, thieves broke in through a gate and drove across fields before prizing open the door to a barn.

A green and black 350cc Yamaha Grizzly Quad bike, a John Deere ride-on lawnmower, three chainsaws and a leaf blower were taken.

Another building on the site was targeted on February 22 when thieves stole two lawn mowers.

A further three lawnmowers were found outside the barn along with a chainsaw and a leaf blower which staff at the site believe were left because the thieves were disturbed.

Anyone with information can contact police on 101.

If the rozzers had any guts, they would be straight down to Rye Hill and speak to some of the people there.
