A MAN who had his digger stolen used technology to have it returned.

Tech-savvy Steve King made sure his stolen possession was returned to him because of a tracking device which sent updates of its whereabouts to his mobile phone.

He said his three-tonne digger and a three-and-a-half-tonne trailer worth £12,000 were taken from a farm in Barugh Green last Wednesday.

But with the help of his clever electronic device he could see where his machine and trailer were being taken.

Working with the police he was able to get them back within three hours of them going missing.
