Police warn a beef thief could be selling stolen meat worth £80,000 around Upton Park.

The haul of Namibian beef was taken from a freight company based in Grays, Essex, between 5pm on December 28 and 4am December 29.

Essex police estimate approximately ten tonnes of beef in branded Natures Reserve boxes was stolen from a refrigerated lorry parked in the yard of Premier Freight Services in Wharf Road.
