“Everyone just wants the thief caught and the guy to get his van back. He’s a nice chap and good at his job. He doesn’t deserve this.

Mum Kayleigh Woodall, 33, bygevoeg: “It was completely opportunist. The thief spotted the keys in the ignition and just went for it.

Everyone feels so sorry for the driver. It must have been terrifying for him.
