Comic Jim Davidson has made an appeal to thieves to return hi-tech sound equipment ahead of his show in St Andrew's Hall, Norwich, at 7.45pm on Saturday.

The PA system, including six speakers each worth £300, was taken from his white Mercedes Benz Vito van that had been parked by his tour manager Steve Farr in Hawkins Close, Great Yarmouth, on Sunday night.

Box loads of Mr Davidson's X-rated Sinderella DVD and cookbooks were also taken in the raid along with DVDs produced by singer/comedian Richard Digance who will also be appearing in the Norwich show.

Mr Davidson said: 'It is a real pain as we were going to use the sound system on Saturday. It is a custom designed system to hear myself on stage and would be no use to anyone else.

'My message to the thieves would be, 'keep the DVDs and books if you like' and I would quite understand if they want to throw away the Richard Digance DVDs they are so boring.

'However, if they are prepared to hand back the speakers and take them to St Andrew's Hall I promise I will dust the fingerprints off.'

He quipped that the people who stole his DVDs might have been seen running down the road laughing.

'I hope they are over 18 or I might get nicked,' he said.

The items stolen are together worth about £3000.

A police spokesman said inquiries were ongoing; anyone with information is asked to contact PC Ben Aldous at Yarmouth Police Station on 101.

The show is part of a tour by the two entertainers.
