Police are appealing for information after the theft of a hydraulic breaker in Byker.

Between 11am and 11:30am on Monday, February 29, thieves stole a Hydraulic breaker in Northumberland Terrace.

The machine had temporarily been left by workmen while a lorry was being unloaded.

Officers believe the purple coloured breaker, which is very heavy and would take at least two or three people to lift it, was dragged down Northumberland Terrace and into a vehicle.

Enquiries are ongoing and officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area and who saw anything to contact them on 101 quoting reference number 357 29/02/16.
