We’re appealing for witnesses after a white Ford Transit van, that was being used to deliver parcels, was stolen on Pyrcroft Road in Chertsey at around 5pm on Tuesday 21 January.

The man then stole the van. The delivery driver was not hurt. The van has subsequently been recovered in Virginia Water.
The delivery driver described the man as:
- Mixed race.
- Around 30 years-old.
- 5ft 11ins tall.
- Average build.
- Clean shaven.
