A child’s quadbike has been swiped from a Staffordshire property as part of a series of lockdown incidents.
On Thursday, May 28, the green quadbike was stolen from a property on Whiston Road in Penkridge between 10.30pm and 11.00pm.
In nearby Bungham Lane an intruder was also seen snooping around a property but left without taking anything after becoming spooked.
It comes as the UK is 68 days into the coronavirus lockdown with families being told to stay home unless they are enjoying unlimited exercise, trips to beauty spots and parks, travelling for work, or doing shopping.
