Thieves have stolen a quad bike and machinery from a farm.

At some point between 4pm on Monday, April 1 and 6am the following day, thieves entered a barn in Rushmere, near Lowestoft, and stole various pieces of farm machinery.

The thieves are believed to have cut the padlock off a gate and entered the farm.

Several barns were ransacked and a Karcher hot pressure washer, 20-litre diesel can, air compressor, two angle grinders as well as various hand tools were taken.

A red Suzuki Eiger Quadrunner quad bike and a Stiga ride-on lawn mower were also stolen from the property, but the lawn mower was left damaged on the roadside close to the scene.
