In the early hours of the morning on the 13th January 2021, a Yamaha Grizzly quad bike worth £10,000 was stolen from a farm near Shipston on Stour.
Warwickshire Police also received a call from a member of public from a neighbouring village in the early hours of the morning reporting suspicious activity whereby a quad bike was seen to be driven at speed through the village.
