Some of you may have seen that we had our car up for sale a while ago.....
Today it was stolen from our drive in Sutton Coldfield, near Birmingham. My husband had been to the shop and when he returned, he saw someone hiding behind the car who then lunged at him with a screwdriver. My husband backed off and the guy drove off in it.

It is a very distinctive Mini..

Wide wheels, Batman logos all over it, twin DTM exhaust, spots...

Please, please keep an eye out. Thankyou in advance

No, he didn't have the keys on him..he'd been to the shop, came back up the drive and they'd obviously already been working on it cause the guy had the screwdriver and a monkey wrench in his hand..not young either, late 40s. There was another car with it, that had apparently been hanging around for a few hours...definitely planned!

Thanks for your good wishes. Obviously we'rs really glad my hubby's ok....just can't believe what's happened.

Ohh b******s... That's where you need an alarm, would of been good in that situation, after they got in it and when driving up road, alarm & imboliser it and run away as fast as you can, he would be a sitting duck :D
