The woman, who does not wish to be named, said: “It was vandalised in April and it cost £11,000 to fix, it was then kept somewhere else.

“We brought it back to my house on Friday as I planned to go away the weekend and that night it was stolen from outside my home, I am distraught.

“What is most upsetting is that someone was probably watching me because they took it as soon as it was back outside.”

There has been a possible sighting at around 2.30am on the night it was stolen heading towards Hemel Hempstead on Dagnall road, followed by a van/truck that was towing a trailer.
