Police in Preston are appealing for information after a van was stolen in Lea.


The Ford Transit van was reported stolen from opposite the Pig and Whistle pub on Blackpool Road.

It was believed to have been taken on Friday 4 October between 11.55am and 12.10pm.

PC Matt Davidson said, “The owner of this van was carrying out work at a nearby house when the van was stolen and so the van held hundreds of pounds of tools. He is devastated by the theft as the vehicle and the tools are his livelihood and so we are very keen to do what we can to trace the people responsible.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 and quote log number LC-20131004-0581 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at
