Horse-drawn carriage worth 30,000 stolen

Equine insurance policyholders have been told that an expensive horse-drawn carriage has been stolen from a barn in Gawsworth.

Manchester Evening News reported that the trailer, which is worth £30,000, was taken overnight on Sunday March 6th.

The vehicle was removed from the barn, located near to a business in the village, sometime between 16:00 and 06:00 GMT.

Police officers in the area have appealed for anyone who saw the incident or may have other information to come forward.

"It is believed that the thieves would have either had to use a long wheelbase van or a flat-bed truck," PC Duncan Toogood said.

"If the carriage was transported on a flat-bed truck anyone in the vicinity of the A536, Congleton Road in Gawsworth, may have spotted it, as it is quite noticeable."

The carriage is Polish made and is described as black with yellow wheels and side skirts.

Last month, event rider Paul Tapner's horse truck was badly damaged in a road traffic accident, although the animals escaped injury.
