A BRIGHT green recycling bank was stolen in broad daylight from a car park Northam.

The 150kg media bank - a recycling facility for old CDs and DVDs - was taken from Bone Hill car park between 9.10am and 10.30am on Thursday, October 3.

Councillor Chris Leather, Torridge District Council's lead member for waste and recycling, said: "It beggars belief that someone would steal a recycling facility meant for the benefit of the whole community.

"We can pinpoint the time it was taken as South Molton Recycle emptied it at 9.08am on that Thursday, and one of our recycling officers noticed it missing at 10.30am the same day."

Anyone with any information about the missing media bank is asked to call the police on 101 quoting crime reference number CD/13/1888.
