    Hi guys, I am posting this for a friend

    "I have woken up this morning to find that my VW camper van "Cherry" has been stolen from around the corner from my house in Cathays, Cardiff. I found my van while traveling in Australia and shipped it back myself so it is in very good rust free condition and has a tremendous amount of sentimental value due to the amount of traveling we have done in her. She is red with a white pop top & white bumpers. She has some unique Australian features including white bull bars on the front with chrome spot lights either side of the front mounted spare wheel and a red sun visor over the front bay window. At the back she has a silver tow bar and on the back window there are Volkswagen Garage stickers for VW garages in Australia.
    Please help me bring me van home!"

    My Boss just came up with a thought...(she does sometimes). It's Glastonbury weekend. Campers have been known to 'disappear' just before the festival. They are used as accommodation, then dumped before the show traffic thins out. Maybe worth a try phoning Avon and Somerset Police, explaining your thoughts. They have cameras all over the place.
