Police are investigating the theft of two caravans from properties near Swaffham.

The first, an Elddis Avante 505 caravan, was found dumped in a ditch near to the westbound carriageway of the A47 in Swaffham at around 9.25pm on April 9.

Police established that it had been stolen from an address on Swaffham Road in Ashill that evening, sometime between 7.10pm and 9.10pm.

Less than an hour later after finding the caravan, at around 10pm, another caravan of the same make and model was stolen in Little Snoring but it has not been recovered.

The thefts are being treated as linked and police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

They are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about someone driving a pick-up truck and acting suspiciously around the time of the incidents.
