Residents are being warned to be vigilant as the driver of a pick-up truck has been seen acting suspiciously in rural areas.

Dorset Police's Rural Crime Team is urging the public to be on the lookout for a white Mitsubishi L200 with the registration number Y*11*KY.

The driver has been seen on farms in the Piddle Valley today asking to buy or borrow tools and other requests.

If you see the vehicle, or other drivers acting suspiciously, gather as much information as possible - such as the registration number and descriptions of the driver and any passengers - and, if it’s safe to do so, take a photograph.

Contact Dorset Police on 999 if the occupants are seen committing crime.

For non-emergency, call 101 or visit, via email
