Four stolen vehicles including a tractor have been found in Doncaster and returned to their owners.

The tractor was used to cut the grass of community pitches in the area and was stolen from Brodsworth Miners Welfare Hall before it was stolen on Friday 3rd November.

Councillors called for immediate action to be taken with one councillor telling police that “The future of the welfare and sports section of the club is in the balance.”

The Doncaster North Neighbourhood Policing team went straight to the scene and eventually found the tractor hidden behind a fence in a muddy wooded area.

The owners of the tractor had a similar incident last year where equipment was never returned, costing the volunteer group a substantial amount of money to replace.

Police Sergeant Kelly Ward of Doncaster North NPT said: “We take vehicle theft incredibly seriously and we will always make sure we leave no stone unturned to reunite stolen vehicles with their rightful owners.”

A day later, Police from the same unit were able to uncover another stolen vehicle, this time a van which had been taken from Barnsley and found in Doncaster.

Another van was also found in Doncaster and a man was arrested after a short chase.

Finally, on Sunday, a fourth vehicle stolen outside a commercial premises in Stainforth was returned to its owners.

Police urge everyone with information about the tractor burglary to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 1152 of 3 November 2023.
