Police are appealing for witnesses after a tractor worth £48,000 was stolen from a hire company in Jedburgh.

The vehicle was taken between 17:00 on Friday and 08:00 on Saturday at Aim Hire on the town's Edinburgh Road.

The tractor is a green and yellow John Deere 6930.

There is a data tag emblem on the rear mudguard, CB aerials on both wing mirrors and a sticker on either side of the bonnet with the name Alastair Lauder written on it.

There was also a green loader attachment fitted to the vehicle.

PC Mark Russell said: "Those responsible for this theft may try and sell this vehicle on and so anyone who comes across individuals attempting to do so is asked to contact police immediately.

"Similarly, anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around Aim Hire on Friday evening into Saturday morning, or who has information that can assist with our inquiries is also asked to come forward."
