“Our Land Management team were on site carrying out vital maintenance work with volunteers when the vehicle was taken.

“As a charity this will have a huge impact as we do not have the resources to quickly replace the missing truck which is used to carry vital equipment to our nature reserves so we can continue our work to maintain and protect local wildlife habitats and species across Sheffield and Rotherham.”

Anyone with information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting the crime number 14/190198/19.
