Ricky Tomlinson has revealed that his caravan was stolen by thieves last week.

The Royle Family actor was using the holiday home as his base in Chester while he was filming a wildlife documentary in the area.

He explained that the theft must have been carried out by several people as it was securely parked.

He told The Mirror: "I can't believe it's happened. It must have been a well-organised gang as it [had been] two feet off the floor and resting on railway sleepers and breeze blocks because it was parked on a flood plain.

"The caravan was also down a lane over a mile long within a gated meadow. They lifted the gate off its hinges and must have had a decent-sized vehicle to take it away."

He added: "I have only had it for a couple of years and it is still in sparkling condition. It is immaculate… the plastic covering was still on the seats. The caravan was in a great spot and I have filmed woodpeckers, ­squirrels and buzzards, for a ­little independent documentary I have been working on for a while.

"There was everything there and it was a lovely place to go for a bit of peace and quiet. I am gutted because I was in the process of letting one of my mates use it for a little outing for his two kids."

Police say that the caravan was taken between 11.30am last Wednesday (June 13) and 9am last Thursday.
