AN anvil weighing a fifth of a tonne has been stolen – with difficulty – in Shepley.
The thieves broke into an outbuilding to steal the 200kg iron anvil, dragging it out into a yard and leaving behind telltale marks.
The anvil was valued at £300, but police believe it could be sold for its scrap value for much more.
The intruders also stole welding equipment from the outbuilding when they struck early yesterday. Any witnesses are urged to contact police on 0845 6060606.
