Just three days later, at about 6am, the same tipping truck was used again - but this time to smash through a fence.

After making their way through the debris, the burglars forced open a shed door with the truck, taking a 'hydraulic manhole ring grab' worth £10,000.

A spokeswoman for Northamptonshire Police today (Tuesday) said that no arrests had yet been made.
