DETECTIVES have appealed for information about a burglary at a motor business.

Two high value motorbike engines were stolen from the repair centre near Binchester, on the A688 between Bishop Auckland and Spennymoor.

The break-in at ARC Binchester happened at about 11.30pm on Thursday.

Durham police are now appealing for anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle entering a field near to the garage.

Crime Enquiry Officer Louise Coglan, of Bishop Auckland CID, said: “We are asking anyone who might have spotted a car accessing a farmer’s field near to the repair centre to get in touch as we believe this is where the suspects have gained access to the garage.”

Enquiries are continuing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Durham Constabulary on 101 quoting incident 55 of November 9.
