A Barnstaple building firm has been left devastated after all their tools worth nearly £10,000 were stolen from a building site in Yelland on Monday night.
Andy Ager, 43, who runs Ager and Sons Builders said the firm arrived at the site at 46 Yelland Road on Tuesday morning and discovered the site had been broken into and all the tools had been taken.
It meant initially the firm was unable to work and they have since had to spend £2,000 replacing some of the equipment.
Mr Ager said: “We have been renovating my father’s house since June and we had locked everything up on Monday night but it had all gone by Tuesday.
“It has been very difficult as they took absolutely everything. They broke into the garage and dragged out the trailer we had in there.”
The police are now appealing for witnesses of the burglary which happened between 5pm on Monday and 8am on Tuesday.
