Solar panels worth thousands of pounds stolen from farm in Gloucestershire
Light fingered wrong ‘uns have been pinching solar panels in Gloucestershire. The Echo tells us that they are being sold door to door. We guess that some people won’t be able to resist a perceived bargain but they’ll be anything but.
