Police on the Isle of Wight are continuing to search for a person, or group, responsible for a number of battery thefts across the Island.

The search follows the theft of another six traffic light batteries that were stolen overnight from a HSS site on Winford Rd in Newchurch.

Country Watch officers are also urging battery owners to etch their postcode onto them & Paint it Pink. Batteries such as those used in vehicles and for electric fences can be a popular choice for thieves, who sell them at scrapyards for their lead content.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Police on 101 quoting ref 44190017092
