Police in Northamptonshire have launched an appeal after a number of road signs were stolen on a stretch of the A45.

According to authorities, a "large quantity" of traffic and safety signs were stolen from the main road, with the thieves using what appeared to be an official van.

During the theft, which occurred between Monday and Tuesday night (June 10th to 11th), a number of lights were also taken, which Northamptonshire Police said could endanger motorists, as many of the warning signs were intended to inform drivers about impending roadworks.

A spokesman for the police said the force has been able to narrow the time of theft down to between 22:00 on Monday night and 20:45 on Tuesday, with the location of the stolen signs and lights originally being between Wilby Way and Turnells Mill Lane.

"It is believed a large vehicle would have been required to remove the signs and lights and that it may have looked like a Highways vehicle," said the spokesman, who urged anyone with information about the incident or potential culprits to contact the police.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801599494-ADNFCR
