Walkies owner Wendy Ashworth has now appealed for anyone who has seen the car to come forward.

She said: “There was nothing in the van that they could have wanted to steal. It was empty.

“The suspicious thing is that it was found just a few streets away.

“We need to keep an eye on it.”

She added that the burglary had left her employee ‘shaken’.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police on 101 quoting the log number LC20170905-0143.
