“I am also keen to hear from anyone who has been offered red and grey Honda rotary mowers or a Stihl strimmer for sale in strange circumstances or for an unusually low price. “Anyone with information that can assist the investigation is asked to contact the police in confidence.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 2:67, or the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
