Anyone missing a JCB 3cx?

Found one in our field near Tarporley in Cheshire this morning, old 1980's model. Somebody took it on again around 3pm but were headed in the opposite direction to where they said they were going having "just bought it"

Cheshire police have the details and photographs, reg plate was missing but serial number was intact
 
Yeh, id say that's the one. The forks were hanging off it on the 4 in 1 and the back arm was in exactly that position.

Dad just said the coppers have rung him this morning... Wish I'd let the tyres down on it now!

Just so I understand, a machine suspected of being stolen is found on Weds, details are taken and given to police, machine moved then in a known direction in suspicious circumstances, the perps having been actually spoken to; fast forward couple of days and same machine seems to have been involved in a national epidemic type of organised crime, involving robbery and arson, and police were not all over it?

They were probably away on a training course :banghead:
 
Found said machine on an advert for sale on facebook. A few tell tale signs that its definitely the same one, wonder if they bought it or nicked it? Reg plate was on in the adverts... Not when it was here though

Possibly like these parts where they are too busy hiding in their speed detector vans!

I once bought a manitou, and had to leave it in a field to cool down overnight as it boiled on way home.!

The Guardian view on animal welfare: keep it up | Editorial

Hard-won protections for both humans and livestock are under threat – and worth fighting for

Hunting, scientific experimentation, entertainment, the keeping of pets, farming, fishing, habitat destruction: there is no one story about the way that humans use animals – and cause them to suffer. So far, the UN reported this week, our collective efforts to protect wildlife globally have not succeeded. All 20 of the Aichi biodiversity targets agreed in Japan a decade ago...
