Investigations are continuing after a car was stolen while the driver was in a fast food takeaway.

Thieves stole the car after the motorist had briefly left the vehicle to go into the fast food restaurant in Lowestoft.

A silver coloured Vauxhall Corsa had been parked and left unattended temporarily in London Road South, Kirkley while the driver went into the nearby Chick-King Kebab fast food restaurant.

The theft happened about 1am on Wednesday, February 26.

At the time a police spokesman said: “The driver left the car for a short period of time, during which the vehicle was stolen.

“The vehicle was then seen being driven into Waterloo Road.”
