Info sought following hit-and-run...involving tractor

In other news, help and information has been sought from the public by the PSNI in relation to a hit-and-run incident involving a tractor.

The incident occurred in Co. Down last month, and appears to have involved a Claas tractor pulling a trailer, judging by police descriptions.

Making an appeal for information, local members of the PSNI took to social media, stating:

Police are looking for information from anyone who may have witnessed a light green tractor with red wheels pulling a trailer on the Derryboy Road, Crossgar, on Tuesday, September 10, at approximately 2:00pm.

This tractor was involved in a collision causing significant damage to property and has failed to stop or report this.

“The resident has returned home from holiday to discover the damage,” the statement added.
