A THIEF who stole a trailer from a village outside Taunton was caught driving off minutes later on CCTV belonging to the loser's friends.

Sharon Baker has parked up in Birches Corner, West Bagborough, earlier today (Thursday, March 30).

She noticed the trailer had gone at around 4pm and immediately called the police.

Shortly after the discovery Sharon's friends at Cothelstone Manor reported seeing it on their CCTV being driven in the direction of Bishops Lydeard.

The trailer is an Ifor Williams HB505.

If you see it or have any information, contact Sharon at Withiel Farm, Cannington.
