A dealer is appealing for information after a performance car was stolen from its forecourt. 

The vehicle, a grey Ford Focus ST-3 with the registration FJ67 VMY, was taken from Fresh Motors at Neaton Business Park, Watton.

It was being advertised for sale at £16,690.

Fresh Motors reported the theft to police on March 6 and believe it could have been stolen any time from late February to early March. 

Jacob Freshwater, owner of the company, said: "The problem was, we didn't know it was gone straight away.

"This sort of thing is definitely a prevalent crime at the moment - exploiting keyless entry to steal cars. We've heard of a couple of other incidents in Watton recently."

A spokesman for Norfolk police said an investigation had been carried out but "all lines of enquiry were exhausted".
