Police are appealing for help to trace three men who stole a trailer loaded with steel girders from an industrial estate in Leyland.

The theft happened in Centurion Way at around 6.30pm on Wednesday November 20 and was captured on CCTV.

The group, in a maroon HGV tractor unit, drove in and jammed open the security gate. They then coupled up the lorry to a trailer carrying £18,000 of steel before driving away.

PC Katy Hall said, “This is a very high value theft, totalling over £23,000 including the cost of the trailer and so we are very keen to speak to anyone that may have any information that could lead us to the people responsible.”

Officers have released images of one of the men they are looking for and are urging the public to get in touch if they recognise him.
