“We are particularly interested in the area between the traffic lights at the crossroads and De Aston School.”

Police are also keen to view footage of the neighbouring roads at the time of the incident which may have captured the Berlingo.

The spokesman continued: “Investigations also show that following the theft, the stolen VW Golf then travelled along the A631 from Market Rasen to Gainsborough and went over the Trent Bridge at 5.12pm.

“We would like to ask for anyone with dashcam, CCTV or phone footage of that route around that time to contact us.”
