    Bollocks, did they break in for keys? There seems to be a worrying number of thefts involving driving away without keys

    Hopefully you are on to it quick enough for the police to have a decent chance with ANPR

    Good luck

    FEELING BLOODY ANGRY FOR YOU. Do you think it someone who had been at festival just getting ride home ... won't say hope you find it cos it depends on HOW it found ... sad to say it might be better if not. Sending you a hug to keep calm... don't let them get your blood pressure up.:(

    Thanks everyone,first time I've had a van nicked. We had both sets of keys in the house and still have them.I had arrived home after the Festival at 2.3o p.m. and it was outside the house until I discovered it nicked this morning. In 2 minds,I have a tracker but may not want it back in the state it mat be in. Hangings too good for them.

    Shocked to hear this, every MH owners nightmare, the tracker should be able to tell you where it is ?

    Get it tracked. Vans are rarely taken for joy-riding; rather they are taken to be sold on, so chances are it will be OK and just minus any portable valuables.

    If you have a tracker but decide not to use it to locate the vehicle I think your insurance company will be seriously miffed, to the extent of possibly not paying up.

    Big commiserations though, I've recently been converted to the joys of alarms and non-starters and am booked in for September at a well known bits seller.

    So sorry for you it must be terrible to find your van gone. I agree please track it, it could be parked somewhere being watched to check if it has a tracker. Someone on Fun found a van recently like this and got it back OK. Good luck.

    Hope you get it back in good condition - or a decent insurance settlement if not.
