British Superbike champion Tommy Hill has issued a plea after his father’s van containing his bulldog puppy Barney inside was stolen.

The family pet and van (registration GK58 NLG), which both belong to the Beckenham racer’s father Mick, went missing at around midday from their house in Shirley on Monday (20).

The 27-year-old Brands Hatch favourite said: “He was in there for 15 minutes and my dad went to check on him and it was gone with the dog inside it.

“It was a van he had just bought, and it was the family dog which goes to work with my dad. The police are looking into it, but I just hope there is someone who’s seen something.”

The family are worried that the thieves do not know Barney is inside. The pup is micro-chipped.

Anyone with any information should call 07769 327950.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
