Metal thieves have stolen 25 tonnes of silver-plated brass taps, which have been valued at £70,000, from a scrap yard in Devon.

The taps were stolen on Sunday from Gorman Metals, in Newton Abbot.

A spokesman from Devon and Cornwall Police said a red and white truck and possibly a dark car and a small white panel van were used during the raid.

The taps were stolen from the yard on Kingsteignton Road between 17:00 and 21:00 GMT.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
