A thief stole a car from outside a pub before crashing into a ditch.

The vehicle, a black Renault Megane, was taken from outside the Kings Arms in Top Street, 
Wing, and was later found a short distance away in Manton Road, between 11.20pm on Saturday and 9am the following morning.

The owner had been in the pub that night and left his car there, and he believes that the keys may have been stolen from an unattended jacket throughout the evening.

The jacket, a grey hooded top, is also outstanding.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.

A police spokesman said: “The officer in the case is asking if anyone saw the vehicle between the times, anyone with it, knows anyone who has acquired a jacket like the one described, or any suspicious activity or noises through the night to come forward and contact him.”

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference LR/00739/14-8.
