The search is starting for a gang who stole five cars from a dealership in Trafford.

Police were called out to reports of a burglary at Evans Halshaw on Manchester Road in Altrincham yesterday morning.

A man had forced his way in at 11.20pm on Sunday before stealing a number of car keys.

Just after 2am on Monday morning a group of around 10 offenders returned and stole five cars, using a vehicle to ram through a perimeter wall.

Inspector Dave Jones of GMP's Trafford Division said: "This was a well-planned burglary that has deliberately targeted this business premises.

"I know people in the community will be worried by this burglary.

"I would like to reassure the public and advise we are treating this as an isolated incident and are determined to find those responsible.

"We have been following a number of lines of enquiry and are appealing for the public to come forward with any information or dashcam footage they might have.

"While this burglary took place in the early hours, the offenders used a vehicle to ram a wall to enable them to get the vehicles out.

"As such I believe there may be potential witnesses who may have been in the area at the time who have either seen or heard the incident on going. I would urge those people to contact the police as soon as possible."

The following vehicles were stolen: GF62 WEP Ford Focus in silver, MK18 LGC Ford Fiesta in blue, DN18 JJZ Ford Fiesta in grey, MH68 EOU Ford Fiesta in silver ,MJ19 OEX Ford Fiesta in white.
