A builder whose flat bed trailer was stolen bought it back after spotting it for sale on an internet auction site.

Richard Keen, from Barmouth, Gwynedd, checked on eBay for a similar trailer after his was stolen, but recognised his own and bid £1,500 for it.

His successful bid meant the seller's details were revealed.

Stefan Rowe, 37, from Sandycroft, Deeside, admitted handling stolen goods and was given 80 hours community service at Dolgellau Magistrates Court.

Prosecutor Tom Morgan Jones told magistrates that once the seller's details had been revealed the "warning bells must have started ringing".

He added: "Mr Keen was told that there had been a misunderstanding and the trailer was withdrawn from the auction."
