A Ferrari racing car valued at £170,000 has been stolen from a hotel car park in Norfolk.

The black Ferrari 430, produced as a race car for the GT3 series, was inside a trailer parked outside the hotel in Norwich Road, Hethersett.

The thieves broke off the hitch lock and stole the trailer on Thursday evening.

Police said the trailer was towed away by a nearly-new, long wheel-base white Mercedes Sprinter van.

Officers said the theft took place between 20:23 and 20:29 GMT.

They said the Ferrari was not a road car and could not be converted into one.

Police have asked anyone who may have seen the trailer, or who has any information about where it and the car may be, to contact them.
