UPDATE: Stolen AKA Design van recovered

A van belonging to studio furniture specialist AKA Design that was stolen earlier this week has been recovered, along with all of its contents.

The black Ford Transit had been missing since Tuesday night (2 August), when it was taken from outside the home of managing director Guy Wilson.

A friend of Wilson’s daughter spotted the vehicle while on a driving test after recognising it from a Facebook post urging people to keep an eye out for the van, which has the firm’s logo clearly printed on the side (pictured).

The van was not holding any company equipment, but it did contain "irreplaceable items and memories" owned by Wilson’s daughter, as the Transit was used to transport her personal belongings back from university.
