A van owner leapt onto the bonnet of his vehicle as thieves drove off in it in the early hours of the morning.

The 42–year–old owner of the Vauxhall Combo van had left his van briefly on Smith Crescent, Chesterfield, at 5am yesterday morning (Monday, April 21) with the keys in it when he heard the door closing.

Upon return, he saw two thieves inside. He stood in the way of the vehicle but the crooks started to drive off.
