RESIDENTS in rural north Dorset are being urged to look out for a suspicious vehicle.

Dorset Police's rural crime team said a white Ford Transit van with registration number **57 AYH has been seen in suspicious circumstances on farms across north Dorset over the last few days.

Anyone who sees this vehicle or other vehicles in similar circumstances is urged to gather as much information as possible - such as the registration number and description of the driver and any passengers - as well as a photo if safe to do so.

Officers are warning people not to put themselves in danger by getting this information. If the occupants are seen carrying out a crime, Dorset Police should be contacted immediately via 999. Non-emergency calls should be made via 101.
