By Claire McWethy

Police are appealing for witnesses after brazen thieves stole a van and wood chipper machine from the side of the motorway, while highways workers were cutting hedges.

It happened on the London-bound M20 between 1.30pm and 2pm on Wednesday, October 4.

Maintenance workers were cutting hedges on the side of the carriageway, between junction 1 for the M25 and junction 2 for Sevenoaks, when the thieves gained access to the van the chipper was attached to and drove away.
