HOLLYOAKS star Kieron Richardson has revealed thieves stole his Range Rover from his driveway in the middle of the night.
The actor asked fans to keep an eye out for the luxury £64,000 car after it was taken from his Manchester home.
He wrote on Instagram: “STOLEN LAST NIGHT …. 2 hoodied figures at 2.35am from my house in Worsley Manchester area if spotted please send me a message.”
His followers rallied with supportive messages and said Range Rover thefts were becoming increasingly common in the area.
Co-star Katie McGlynn said: “Shared it! Vile cretins! Hope you’re ok.”
Steph Waring posted: “Just shared for you!!! Sorry mate that’s awful xx.”
Range Rovers topped a list of the most stolen cars in the UK last year.
Geographically, the key hotspots of cars being stolen were London, Essex, Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham.
Gavin Hennessy, operations manager at Global Telemetrics, said: “Sadly certain aspects of vehicle theft will always be inevitable, especially for those drivers of highly desirable cars, vans and bikes, but that doesn’t mean vehicle owners can’t protect themselves.
“A tracker is the simplest way to ensure that should the worst happen; you can significantly increase the chance of getting your car back in one piece.”
