POLICE found hundreds of litres of red diesel and cannabis plants as they seized vehicles thought to have been involved in thefts.

Officers from the Faringdon Neighbourhood Team said one man had been arrested in connection with the seizure in Great Coxwell.

Red diesel involves fuel that has been dyed to prevent its misuse in road vehicles.

It is used to power agricultural or construction vehicles such as tractors, excavators and cranes.

Images shared by Thames Valley Police showed white vans filled with containers full of the substance.

An investigation is ongoing.
