We were contacted by a plant hire customer reporting a Kubota K008-3 Micro Digger stolen from a work site south of Frodsham Golf Course in Cheshire. We sent a signal to remotely trigger the Automatrics MTrack theft recovery tracking system to connect at 14.30. The unit reported a cell location just north of Frodsham indicating the machine had not been travelled far. After several GPS attempts we achieved a GPS accurate fix to report to Cheshire police to check out the first what3words mapping grid close to the M56 by the River Weaver. 

We updated the Cheshire control room to meet our customer who discovered the machine hidden behind a pumping station wall. The machine was recovered back to Widnas for forensic examination.
