Police are appealing for information after a van was stolen from a busy building site – in broad daylight.

Around 3.30pm yesterday (Thursday) a man working on a building site in Smalldale, Bradwell, returned to his van for a break, only to find it had disappeared.

The man had heard a van drive away at around 2.30pm, but had thought nothing of it as the site was busy.

The thief is believed to have taken the van keys – which were left near to the Volkswagen Transporter van – unlocked the vehicle and driven away.

Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101.
