A 'STOLEN' Land Rover has overturned after crashing on a North Dorset hill.

Police in Sherborne are investigating the crash, which happened at around 8am in Sandford Orcas, Sherborne.

It involves a Land Rover Defender which may have been stolen from a property in Yeovil.

Dorset officers are liaising with colleagues from Avon and Somerset Police.

The vehicle is due to be recovered. It will then be forensically examined.

Sherborne Police posted a photo of the Land Rover on their Facebook page this morning. An officer said: “The thief presumably did not anticipate that part of this hill was missing.”
