Stolen car trailer discovered 10 years after being reported missing from Ashford

By Sam Williams

A car trailer - stolen more than a decade ago - has been returned to its rightful owner.

The trailer was reported missing to police in September 2007 from Church Road in Sevington, Ashford.

Its whereabouts remained unknown...until now.

The trailer was discovered in a field in Marden, close to Maidstone, last week by Kent Police's rural team.

They have since returned it to its original and 'delighted' owner.

A tweet from the rural team said: "This trailer which was stolen over 10 years ago from Ashford was recently found by an officer from our West Team in #Marden.

"Today it has been reunited with its rightful owner much to their delight."

The discovery led to the arrest of a man - but he was later released without charge.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Police investigating the theft of a trailer from Church Road, Sevington on September 28, 2007 have located it and reunited it with the rightful owner.

"Officers found the trailer in a field in Marden.

"A man was arrested and was later released without charge."
