Police are investigating after three suspects allegedly rammed the gates of a property near Swindon during an early morning burglary.

During the morning of February 16, three offenders travelling in a vehicle reportedly rammed the gates of an address at Back Lane, Baydon, causing around £4,000 worth of damage.

Numerous power tools were then stolen from a vehicle parked outside the property, as well as from inside outbuildings.

The suspects were then disturbed and fled the scene in the vehicle they arrived in.

The items taken include two Milwaukee half-inch battery guns, a Dewalt angle grinder, a Milwaukee drill, a Dewalt drill, a Milwaukee heat gun, and a hedge trimmer and strimmer attachment.
