Between 1pm and 6.30pm on Tuesday, March 22, the light green VW camper van, which was locked, was stolen from the driveway of a house in Brocket Road.

The registration is LFO 480.

PC Gavin Richardson is investigating and said: “The vehicle is very distinctive with a split panel windscreen. The family who own it were going to use it for a holiday this year and would like it returned to them.

“It’s not clear on whether the offender(s) would have driven off in the vehicle or put it on a low loader.
