Investigations are ongoing into an apparent crime spree along the Laois-Offaly border in the early hours of Sunday 16 May.

It is understood that the thefts of a Jeep in Borris in Ossory, a trailer in Clonaslee and a John Deere Gator in Cadamstown may be linked to a single individual or crime group.

A quantity of diesel is also missing from a separate farm in Clonaslee.

In a seemingly connected incident, another farmer from the Coolagh area of Clonaslee took to social media to show a locked field gate which had been "burst in by a vehicle".

The vehicle "drove around in circles before leaving".
