Farm burglary in Calcethorpe near Louth

A farm in Calcethorpe, near Louth, was targeted by burglars at around 10.50pm on Tuesday night (November 1).


The owner of the farm returned home at around 11.05pm, which disturbed the offenders and caused them to flee.

At this time, the only item believed to be stolen is a set of keys.
