  1. Did anyone who travelled on the M25 at around 4:30pm this afternoon (Tuesday 22nd May) see a white 3 door Cosworth on the back of an Iveco truck around junction 15 towards Heathrow. Looking to see if anyone has dash footage or taken a picture as it might be the one stolen from Mablethorpe at the weekend. Cossie has damage on the passenger side.
  2. White 3 door Sierra Cosworth reg D588OWA was stolen from the driveway of a house in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire at around 3:30am on Sunday 20th May 2018. The car has been stood on the owners driveway for 5 years & was dragged off the drive as the brakes were seized on, the car is fitted with a steering lock & the steering was on full lock. A neighbour heard banging & dragging at around 3:30am. The car has a standard Cosworth engine aside from blue injectors from an Escort Cosworth & a 3” stainless exhaust system with 4” Prima racing spec Scorpion tailpipe. The car is fitted with 55 profile tyres & due to the car being stood, the lacquer is coming off the alloys. The car has a mint interior & dashtop & is fitted with a new fuel tank. Bodywise, the car has rust on the leading edge of the bonnet & the passenger side wing is dented. Someone had apparently posted a picture of the car on a Retards Club group stating that the car was rotting away in Mablethorpe not that long ago, now the car has been stolen.

The car, which had been competing in the Vintage Sports Car Club Herefordshire Trial on the Saturday was parked up in the layby on a trailer. Due to adverse weather the owner deemed it unsafe to continue his journey towing the car so left it in the layby.

  10. Silver Mk3 Capri 2L Laser reg D418OTW was stolen off the driveway of a house in the village of Earls Colne in Essex at around 11:30am on Thursday 15th February 2018.

  11. White Sierra XR4i was stolen from an underground parking area in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham during the early hours of Saturday 10th March 2018. The car is totally original apart from the stereo. The car is white with grey skirts & has a red sun strip on the top of the front windscreen. It has a small amount of corrosion around the leading edge of the sunroof & has overspray of waxoil under the front valance. The electric mirrors & speaker selectors don’t work & the gas struts for the rear hatch have failed so don’t hold the boot open. These should make the car recognisable. The car has recently been put back on the road & has 4 new tyres fitted. The car is registered to a doris who is seriously ill & has been in her family for over ten years so holds great sentimental value to the family. There is a reward for any information leading to the recovery of this vehicle. Anyone who has any information can contact the owners son Russell on 07708610365 or West Midlands Police HQ on 0345 113 5000 or via 101 & quote crime reference number 20BW54839AL18
