THREE teens have been arrested after a vehicle was stolen and found dumped in Wherwell.

The theft is alleged to have taken place overnight between Sunday evening and Monday morning.

A silver Citroen Picasso was from the driveway of a property in Chilworth, before it was later found in Fullerton Road, Wherwell.

This morning, two 15-year-old boys from Southampton and one 14-year-old boy from West End have been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

Police say enquiries are ongoing and have since issued an appeal to the public and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in either Chilworth Grove, between May 17 and May 18, or Fullerton Road where the car was located.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote 44200175428.
