Thieves attempting to steal diesel from a filling station in Carlisle were foiled after an alarm was tripped and police raced to the scene and caught them in the act. The incident occurred at Carleton Filling Station, which is owned by Top 50 Indie Hills of Corby, on the night of December 28-29.

The site is equipped with a Fairbanks fuel management system, which sent a text to Hills of Corby director, Michael Collins, alerting him that levels in the fuel tank were falling despite the site being closed.

He could see that around 1,500 litres had been removed, so he called the police.
