A delivery van with parcels inside was stolen in a carjacking incident on Friday of last week.

The 37-year-old driver was sitting in his white Ford transit van in Tindall Close, Harold Wood, when he was approached by two men – one opened the door and pulled him out.

The two white men, aged around 30, then made off with the van, which contained a number of parcels and said ‘Amex’ on the side.

The theft took place at about 11.30am.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Romford CID on 101 or Crimestopppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
