CAMBRIDGESHIRE police has released CCTV images of three people they want to trace in connection with the theft of a Vauxhall Corsa for a Huntingdon garage.

The brand new car - worth more than £8,500 - was stolen from Murketts in Stukeley Road just after 1pm on Sunday, April 22.

Officers have said that a couple visited the showroom on Thursday, April 19, before driving away in a Mercedes coupe.

"I would like to speak to anyone who saw the man and woman on the Thursday at around 3.30pm, or the man and woman from the Sunday.

"They wore dark clothing and walked along Ermine Street and Stukeley Road from the direction of Dunelm at about 1pm on Sunday."
