CCTV images have been released after specialist equipment worth £3000 was stolen from a building site in Totton.

A hydraulic breaker that fits to the rear of a mini digger is a rusty metal colour and weighs 150kg so would be difficult to carry.

The heavy item was stolen around 5pm on Thursday 3rd April and 11am the following morning from the rear of a mini digger at the Larchfield site on Michigan Way.

Whoever took the breaker appears to have forced the fence next to a footpath that runs between the site and a care home on Derwent Drive.

Two people were spotted on CCTV in the area at the time. A picture of one of them is being released today as Police are keen to identify him.
