Police in Co. Derry are appealing for information after a tractor drove straight into a house in the county. Read more below! Picture Belfast Telegraph.

A house in Derry was greeted with an unwelcome surprise, as a tractor ploughed straight into it.

Police were called to the area at approximately 10pm on Sunday night, as reported by the Belfast Telegraph, to discover a crashed tractor had been abandoned at the house. The tractor had crashed into the house at Cheery Lane in Feeny, which was unoccupied at the time.

Significant damage was caused by the incident, to both the exterior and interior. The tractor had been stolen from a local building site in the area and was then found abandoned on the Glenshane road on the outskirts of the village.

The incident is now under investigation by local police, who have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information on the incident to come forward.

“This is a shocking level of criminal damage directed by, or committed by an individual with absolutely no regard for who they could have injured in the process of this reckless act.”, said Detective Inspector Bob Blemmings.

"I firmly believe there are people in the local community who know who carried out this appalling crime…I would ask anyone who knows anything about this incident, or who was in Feeny village prior to or around the time the incident was reported to police and saw any suspicious behaviour to contact us.”, he added.

Mr. Blemmings also appealed to any drivers with a dash cam to contact them.

"I would also appeal to any driver who was in Feeny village last night at around 10pm and has a dash cam fitted to their vehicle to check their footage. Please call police on the non-emergency number 101.
