Two men have been arrested following the alleged theft of a digger from Berkhamsted. 

Police received intelligence at around 10.45pm on December 3 that the JCB digger was about to be stolen from near the golf course, in The Common.

Officers attended and discovered a 7.5 tonne lorry in a nearby car park, which was allegedly being used to steal the machine. 

One man ran off before being detained and arrested, along with a second man.

Meanwhile, the lorry was driven away, almost colliding with the police vehicle in the process, and was found abandoned a short while later.

A 22-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead was arrested on suspicion of theft of motor vehicle and a 42-year-old man from Bovingdon was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit theft.

The digger was recovered, undamaged and enquiries are continuing.
