Philip Leonard said his Bailey Pegasus twin axle 646 caravan was stolen from Prickwillow Road, Isleham between Tuesday, November 17 and Wednesday, November 18.

Phil believes the caravan was unlocked before being dragged across farmland near to his home and driven away.

“There would have to be a minimum of two or three involved,” he said.

“It was about 9am on Wednesday I noticed it had gone, so we then notified police. We have put an appeal on social media and people are sharing it to try and make it as visible as possible.

“My wife is upset because that has been our family holiday for years.”

A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said: “The caravan was stolen between 4pm on Tuesday (November 17) and 10.30am on Wednesday (November 18). No arrests have been made, but investigations are ongoing.”
