A man has been charged with the theft of Bill Bailey's tour van, which was taken while he was performing a show.

The Mercedes Sprinter was taken from outside Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on 26 October.

It was found three days later in Tuebrook, which led the comic to tweet his thanks to the police and the "good people of Liverpool" for their help.

A 35-year-old from Liverpool has been charged with burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and driving while disqualified.
