Rural crime cost Devon and Cornwall over one million pounds last year.
That's according to new figures published by a leading rural insurer. It's an increase of 35% from 2012. The most common items stolen were tools, quad bikes and farm machinery such as plough and hay balers.
The survey says rural crime cost the entire South West around £5.5 million in 2013.
