The mayor of Milton Keynes has had her chauffeur-driven car stolen from her house while the driver helped to put on her livery collar.

Catriona Morris, the mayor of Milton Keynes, was preparing for a trip to Stadium mk to announce it had been chosen for the Rugby World Cup, when the car was pinched from under her nose.

"We turned round, walked back up the up the drive again and there was an empty space," she said.

It is unclear whether the Mercedes C Class had vehicle tracking but the police are currently investigating the theft.

According to miltonkeynes.co.uk, the car is owned by a taxi firm and was stolen from the mayor's drive at around 10:00 am on Friday 3 May.

Ms Morris said that the driver parked the car at the end of the drive.

"He walked down the drive and helped me put my chains on which took about a minute," she explained to bbc.co.uk.

When they returned to the car it had gone, she said.

"We thought we were going mad. Then some builders, who were working on a house a few doors up, came out and assured us we weren't and that actually somebody has pinched it."

The builders told the mayor that the thief 'reversed at speed out of the village'.
