Theft of Heavy Vehicles for Agriculture

Question

I am currently researching the cost and prevalence of thefts of vehicles specifically for the agricultural, construction and haulage/HGV industries. It is proving very difficult to locate facts and figures and I wonder if you could possibly provide me with a summary of this information for your Force, if you have it.

Clarification received:

What I am looking for is the number of heavy vehicles for agriculture, construction and haulage that have been stolen during 2015.  If there is a cumulative value for the vehicles in each category, that would be great.
