About 1,000 litres of fuel was siphoned off from a Melbourn oil tank by thieves.

The owners filled up the tank in Royston Road at the end of last month, and returned on Friday to find it empty.

Police have no description of the thieves and it is unclear at what point the fuel was stolen.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference number CF0071490216.
