Red, red wine ... it's up to you

Around 600 bottles were stolen after being delivered to a shop in Langbar, near Ilkley, on Tuesday (November 8).

A pallet containing Domaine des Vercheres Macon Villages 2014, which retails for around £14 a bottle and originates from the Burgundy region of France, was last seen at 8pm and had disappeared the following morning.

There were also around 300 bottles of other varieties of wine in the pallet, which would have required a vehicle to move from the scene.
