Police in the Borders are appealing for witnesses following the theft of a scissor lift access platform from Farne Salmon and Trout Ltd’s Duns premises some time between 8pm and midnight on Sunday, November 5.

The machinery is a MEWP Scissor Lift 6RS JLG, yellow and orange in colour and has the serial number B200015536. It has an estimated value of £34,000.

“Equally anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the Duns Industrial Park area in the days prior is asked to come forward with any information.”
