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".

Anyone with information can call Norfolk Constabulary on 101, quoting crime reference 36/14326/21.
