POLICE are appealing for help to find a valuable James Bond-style car which has been stolen from Westerleigh.

The rare Aston Martin DB vantage, similar to that used in several Bond films, was taken form a secure unit in Henfield Business Park between September 29 and October 11. Appeals so far have failed to locate the car.

The theft of the classic car has sparked an appeal by Avon and Somerset Constabulary for members of the public in Westerleigh to be extra vigilant.

Detective Constable Celia White added: "This is a rare car that is worth hundreds of thousands of pounds and I believe someone knows where this car is.

"I would urge car dealers and collectors who may have seen this car or who may have heard that there is one for sale to come forward and contact us. Your information will be treated in confidence."

Anyone who has information about the car is asked to call South Gloucestershire CID on 101 quoting crime reference number 121329/12. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
