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.
