    Thats terrible, clearly been targeted by pro's. Will keep eyes open.

    Tracker or anything installed?
    Was it well known, or had it been advertised for sale recently?

    IT HAS BEEN FOUND AND RETURNED!

    From the owner.....
    It was entirely down to the great work by everyone sharing this thread and posting on Facebook and twitter!

    The police had an anonymous call informing them that someone had spotted a mini which they had heard had been stolen. The most frustrating thing was that it was found only about half a mile away, in a private road stuffed in behind a tree! It was about the limit of how far it could have been pushed. Not fully inspected it yet but it looks almost perfectly intact except the locks/barrels and the bonnet hooks ripped off. Waiting for SOCO to check it over for prints. Assumption is opportunistic criminals who took it somewhere out of sight and then were unable to work out how to start it so abandoned it.

    The added bonus is the £200 tool kit is still in the car!

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!! It is well and truly secured now and I will be buying wheel clamps, crook locks, and a tracker tomorrow!

    Thank you again. Can anyone who posted on other forums please update this with the great news!
