    As previously posted the Mazda Bongo appeared to have been used in sheep rustling on the moors above Stannington, Sheffield. It also appears that other vehicles were stolen at the same time as the bongo, amongst which was a Range Rover and a Morris Minor. These were found at the scene of the crime the Morris Minor had parts which had fallen off it as a result of the off roading on the moors and was subsequently torched, the Range Rover was up to its axles in mud and abandoned, the only vehicle which they managed to get the sheep away in was the Bongo.

    As previously said the Bongo was taken to the police compound for forensic investigations when the friend went on Monday they were told they couldn't have it back as these tests had not been done. She said that she just wanted to see if the performance sticks etc were still in the Bongo as these were need to enable the Boggarts (Morris dancers) to fulfil their engagements in the coming weeks. South Yorkshire police would not let them retrieve or even have a look to see if they were still there.

    A video has been made and has gone on U tube showing what the Boggarts have fudge up to use instead of their beloved sticks. I don't know how to post the video but the link title is
    Boggarts Breakfast and the Stolen Sticks
    Boggart's Breakfast were bereft after the theft of the Boggart Bongo containing all their performance sticks. But all was not lost...

    I'm pleased that they have taken the plunge(r) and used alternatives to the sticks but that was one hell of a racket and there was something fishy about the whole thing.

    Hope that the Bongo is not beyond repair.

    Hi Viennese,

    Have just spoken to my daughter and because these sticks take a lot of beating the wood has to be Blackthorn or Hazel that has been seasoned for at least 2 years, straight and a certain length and diameter, but thanks for the offer. Apparently other types of wood break too easily.

    Sheila x

    If the bongo was used to transport sheep I fear the interior will be trashed. And if the sheep found the sticks and started dancing...

    But commiserations to the owner. Massive cleaning up job at the least.
