THIEVES who swiped two powerful generators from a train depot could risk lives if they try and convert them for personal use, a police officer has warned.

The two petrol-powered machines worth £1,000 were stolen from Stonebridge Park London Underground last month, but have yet to be recovered.

The specialist portable generators, which are yellow in colour, are specifically designed to be used on the railway and could have been stolen up to a week before the crime finally came to light on February 18.

PC Terry Hall, from British Transport Police is investigating the theft, issuing a stark warning, he said: "I am concerned that anyone who tries to convert them for domestic use could be risking serious harm to themselves so it is vital we recover them as soon as possible."

The generators are model HSF R24' models and weigh around 40kg.

Anyone with any information about the identity of those who stole the generators is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 quoting incident number 234 of 18/2/2010.
