The distinctive blue vehicle was taken from Neil and Catherine Carmichael’s home on Saturday 2 December around lunchtime.

Catherine said: “They have come to the front door covering their faces, pressed the doorbell and seen we were not in. They then flicked the camera away.

“They have come through to the back of the house and smashed a window. It was broad daylight and they were bold as brass.

“We got home at 7pm, saw the gates were open and realised there was no car.
