Essex Police are appealing for information following the theft of a classic sports car in a burglary at Corringham.

The red Triumph TR6, with an estimated value of £14,000, was stored in a lock-up garage at Parkmill Close but was missing when the owner went to check the vehicle on Monday August 3.

The car is believed to have been stolen some time in the previous four weeks since the owner last went to the garage.

DI Rob Huddleston said: “The owner lives locally but drives the car only occasionally. He had not been to the garage for about a month. He was absolutely devastated to find that thieves had broken in and taken the car, which was his pride and joy and looked absolutely superb.

“We would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the burglary or from anyone with information about the current whereabouts of the car.”

Anyone with information should contact Essex Police on 101.
