Owner stops mower theft

Have your say

Police are hunting two men who attempted to steal a sit-on lawnmower from a house in Mattersey, near Doncaster, before they were disturbed by the owner.

They drove off in a white Astra van towards Gainsborough, but as they left they struck the victim’s car, causing damage to the front driver’s side of the van.

The offenders were in their 40s, of stocky build, about 5ft 10ins tall.

One was bald, the other wore a hat.
