MODEL car collectors in Bridgwater are being urged to be on the lookout after a collection worth £3,000 was stolen.

The 143 scale die-cast models were taken during a break-in in South Road, Taunton, between August 23-26.

The collection includes 1:43 scale models with many well-known names such as Corgi, Dinky and foreign makes. The cars date back to the 1960s and 1970s. Many were unboxed but in a mint condition.

A brief case, TV, camera, jewellery and other items were also taken.

Owners of second-hand shops and model collectors are being asked to contact the district targeting team on 101 if they see the model vehicles.

Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
