THE owner of an adapted horsebox used as part of a DJ set at summer festivals has appealed for its return.

The distinctive, bright yellow box was stolen from the driveway of Robert Burnell's home in Warwick Place, Bournemouth.

Robert, who runs the On The Bus festival at Corfe Castle in July, said: "This is our main stage so it will be difficult to do much without it.

"It was towed away in the night and is unique so someone must know where it is."

The Rice horsebox trailer is painted yellow with black stripes down the side. It contains equipment used to construct a DJ booth.

It was towed away between 10pm on January 1 and 7am the following morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call Dorset Police on 101 or the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
