Police are appealing for information about the theft of a van and damage to property.

Just before 1.30am on Tuesday, December 23, a white Ford Transit van collided with a concrete post, fence and car at a house on Ashford Mews, Gamesley.

The vehicle did not stop and was driven off along Youlgreave Crescent towards Melandra Castle Road.

Two hours later a white Transit van, stolen from outside a house on Youlgreave Crescent, was found abandoned on Hargate Hill, Glossop.

There is evidence that someone had tried to set fire to the vehicle.

Officers believe this vehicle may have been the van which collided with the property on Ashford Mews and are appealing for information about the theft, the collision or the abandoning of the vehicle.

Anyone with information should contact either PC Lisa Salt or PC Gareth Podmore on 101, quoting incident number 35/23/12/14. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
