North Wales Police received a call just before 3.42am on Wednesday reporting that a white VW Golf had been taken from outside a home in Meadowside, Ewloe.

A spokesman for the force said offenders gained entry to the property via an unlocked back door and stole a car key, before taking the vehicle.

It is understood the vehicle taken was a black convertible BMW M3, the spokesman added.
