A1 lorry drivers are urged to use secure parks after vehicles were slashed open while parked overnight in Rutland
A number of children's carry cots were stolen from a lorry parked alongside the A1 in Rutland.
The theft was discovered during the early hours of Tuesday last week (September 7) at a lay-by near to the former Ram Jam Inn at Stretton.
The lorry's side curtain had been cut open and the items taken.
Three other lorries had also been cut open but nothing was stolen.
Sergeant Paul Kear, of Rutland Police, said thefts from lorries is a common problem along the A1 and encouraged drivers to use secure lorry parks as much as possible.
The closest ones to Rutland are located in Peterborough and Colsterworth.
