A Niftylift T120 trailer lift was stolen on Tuesday night from the yard of HW Wilson in South Ockendon, Essex, UK, but recovered barely 48 hours later, thanks to the swift action by local police and the media.
Thieves broke in by cutting the fence open and then towing the trailer lift away with a Ford Transit van. The company and the local Police quickly checked CCTV cameras from a variety of sources, along with the dash cam of a passing car and a bus. The platform was discovered in Tilbury and is now back with the company.
Hopefully the thieves have also been apprehended and action will be taken to make an example of them.
