Paul Scholes has car stolen from driveway

Manchester United ace Paul Scholes is reeling after his 4x4 was stolen from his driveway yesterday.

The 38-year-old midfielder was the victim of an opportunist theft. He reportedly left his car unattended at his Oldham home with the engine running and the doors unlocked in order to melt ice on it. The thief took off in the vehicle before he returned outside.

This morning, police confirmed that "inquiries to locate the car are ongoing".

Such a high profile theft could do a lot to promote the anti-theft technology currently available to luxury car owners. Vehicle tracking systems are one piece of technology which could aid the stolen vehicle recovery process.

In a statement cited by yahoo.com, Greater Manchester Police warned residents about copying the behaviour of the footballer.

"Motorists may be tempted to leave their vehicle with the engine running while they go inside to stay in the warm. However, it only takes a few seconds to steal a car when keys have been left in the ignition," they said.

Bbc.co.uk reports that Scholes was awarded the car for free as part of Chevrolet's recent deal to be the club's official car sponsor.
