The van appeared secure and there had been no damage caused to it, although a single bright blue gloves and some wire was located underneath the vehicle by police.

The vehicle had been emptied of all the tools the engineer normally carries with him.

One of the company’s owners. Gurminder Jassal spoke to The Extra saying: “This was a sneaky theft, but the police are fairly sure they know how it was done, even although there’s not a scratch on the van. The value of the tools stolen is roughly £3500, and without them we can’t do our work. It’s no better than stealing cash from someone.

“Our reward will be paid to anyone who can either provide evidence leading to the arrest of the person or prsons responsible, or for the safe return of the stolen goods.”
