Police officers in Hampshire are used to finding the owners of abandoned cars on our county’s roads, but they rarely have to deal with agricultural machinery.

Earlier today the Hampshire Response Cops Twitter account posted that they had found an abandoned tractor on a track next to Morestead Road near Winchester.

Officers reported that the tractor’s engine had been left running.
