A Cleveland Police spokesman said: "Hartlepool PCSOs located the car after it had first been taken without the owner’s consent before then going on to crash into a wall and smash into a number of other vehicles in the Stockton Road area of the town on January 22.

"The male who allegedly took the vehicle is known to police and is to be questioned about the incident.

"Meanwhile, the unfortunate owner must now find an alternative method of getting around because this one is no longer roadworthy."
