Burglars who ransacked the home of Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles and stole cars from his driveway are being hunted by police.

Two cars were stolen from Moyles's home in Highgate, north London, on Thursday, while the DJ was on holiday.

The Met said the vehicles had since been recovered in Colindale, north-west London. No arrests have been made.

Moyles, the longest-serving breakfast host in Radio 1's 45-year history, will present his last show next month.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We are investigating a burglary that took place on Thursday at an address in Highgate.

"Two vehicles that were stolen as a result of the burglary have been recovered and inquiries are continuing. There have been no arrests at this time."

Moyles, who has presented the breakfast show for eight years, is being replaced by Nick Grimshaw on the Radio 1 breakfast show.
