Stolen digger goes Dutch.

A JCB digger stolen from the Midlands was recovered by of-ficers in the Netherlands - less than 24 hours after the theft.

The excavator was taken from a business just off the A429 in the Cotswolds at around 6pm on Thursday and transported on a Polish-registered vehicle to Dover.

Dutch officers on the German-Dutch border stopped the digger and arrested a 67-year-old man on suspicion of theft.

Pc Tim Griffiths said: "The digger was fitted with a tracking device which was a massive help. We would encourage owners of this type of equipment to ensure that they take all reasonable measures to protect their equipment from theft."

The suspect is currently in custody in the Netherlands.
