Crackdown on battery thefts

Farmers across Peterborough & Cambridgeshire are being urged to ‘paint it pink’ as part of a crackdown on battery thefts.

Between March and May there were 108 battery thefts in the city and county damaging their livelihood and costing them hundreds of pounds.

Thieves cut the cables from farmer’s irrigation pumps and machinery or find scrap batteries from yards and attempt to sell them at scrap yards or recycling centres for their lead content.
