The appeal comes after a large amount of valuable items were taken during a burglary at an address on Nutfield Street, Todmorden.

Police say the incident happened on a date and time unknown between Monday, April 8 and Wednesday, April 17.

All of the equipment, including some power tools, was taken from a store room inside the property.

DC Craig Pearson of Calderdale CID, said: “Given the amount of equipment taken we suspect the thief of thieves will have used a van to transport the goods and taken a long time to move them from the property.

“The items are also highly specialised so I would urge anyone with a particular interest in outdoor activities including climbing / mountaineering, mountain biking, caving, canyoning and parachuting to get in contact.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting crime reference 13190204590
