An appeal for information has been issued by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) following the theft of a Ford Ranger pick-up truck earlier in the week.

Taking to social media on Tuesday, September 24, members of the PSNI based in Co. Armagh issued a plea for details from the public.

We believe the vehicle travelled in the direction of Newry.

"Were you on the roads, did you see anything suspicious? Better still would you have dashcam footage? If you can offer any assistance please call 101 and quote ref 226 of 24/9/19," the police statement concluded.
