POLICE are requesting people to keep their eyes peeled for a missing tractor. 

The theft happened at a farm in Frosterley, Weardale, sometime overnight between Saturday, October 31 and Sunday, November 1. 

The tractor is a red and black Case IH with yellow front tyres and is similar to the one pictured. 

Police are requesting that anyone who has seen the tractor or has information about the theft contact PC Tinkler from Bishop Auckland response on 101 quoting incident number 101 of November 1.

Andrea Stephenson, director of FarmWatchUK, the UK's number one rural crime alert network said: "Any type of rural crime is distressing for the farmer but essential tools such as tractors and quad bikes, when stolen, present difficulties in the day to day running of a farm."
