The car, a Skoda Superb Estate, was described by Mark as the couples "forever car".

Mark reported the incident to Wiltshire Police when they realised it had been stolen.

Mark said: "We brought it as our forever car and it is outrageous to have it stolen especially at this time of the year, it is not a good time of year for something like this to happen."

The 80-year-old is now offering a £500 reward for anyone who has information that may lead to the car being found.

A spokesperson from Wiltshire Police said: "We have received a report of a navy blue Skoda being stolen near Grovely Woods, Salisbury, at around 3pm on December 30.

“Our enquiries are ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to report it online or on 101 using reference 54230137750.”
