They would now like to hear from anyone who can identify the women in the photograph or who may recognise the items or know who they belong to.

They believe the items could have been stolen anywhere in Lancashire, Greater Manchester or Derbyshire

Detective Sergeant Neil Smith, of Blackpool Police, said: “We believe the items found in the car may have previously been stolen and we would like to reunite them with their rightful owners. They may well have a good deal of sentimental value.

“The car was stolen in Derbyshire and the registration plates stolen from Greater Manchester so the property could potentially have travelled quite a distance.
