A Sidford garage owner is appealing for information after one of his courtesy cars was stolen.

Gordon Legg, of East Devon Garage, believes the black and beige Smart car was taken on either July 5 or 6 after working hours.

The car had been locked behind the gates for repair work but it was only discovered missing on Monday.

Mr Legg said: “We have been really busy with some big jobs so we had been concentrating on them. It has started to get back to day to day stuff and that’s when we find it had gone missing.

“I have spent money to get it up and running. It affects our work, I have had to cancel work. I put it on Facebook to get it out there so people know it’s happen.”
