POLICE are hunting a gang of thieves after a significant amount of copper piping, cable, and tools were stolen from Newbury Business Park.
At around 6.30pm on Monday, January 16, two men entered the business park on the A4, London Road, through a side gate.
Then at approximately 7.40pm, three additional men drove onto the site in a red Ford Transit van with roof racks on top and joined the two men.

The vehicle left the site 20 minutes later, driving along the A4 in the direction of Thatcham.
