Forklift truck stolen from Radlett nursery

POLICE are on the hunt for thieves after a forklift truck was stolen from a nursery school in Radlett.

The theft took place at First Place Nursery School, Watling Street, on Tuesday (January 17).

Between 6.05pm and 7pm, thieves are said to have cut through a lock on a gate at the premises and started a forklift truck, before loading it with concrete blocks which were then used to block the entrance.

According to police, a vehicle, possibly a low loader, was then reversed onto the site and the forklift was removed.

The forklift was a large, red off-road Manitou with the model number S1235ST.

Investigating officer PC Workman said: “The offenders were wearing high visibility clothing and hard hats and they may have had to stop the traffic. If you were in the area you may have thought they were working at the site.

“I would appeal to anyone who did see anything to contact me with information.”
