Police in Ashover are appealing for information about a stolen quad bike that was recovered.

The bike was recovered on Cripton Lane at around 8.30pm, on Sunday, December 18, after police received calls to say a quad had been abandoned at the side of the road.

It is a red Honda and had been stolen from a nearby farm earlier that day. Police believe it was towed from the farm to where it was dumped.

Diesel was also siphoned from a tractor on the farm on Hill Top Road, Ashover.

Officers from the Wingerworth and Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team would like to speak to anyone who saw the quad being towed through the village or anyone acting suspiciously in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Wingerworth and Rural SNT on the non-emergency number 101.
