The Nugget, which is a Transit camper van, is one of only approximately 50 right-hand drive versions ever made.

PC Jonathan Sutton of Calderdale Police, said: “This is a distinctive and irreplaceable vehicle and I would appeal to anyone who sees it or is perhaps offered it for sale to get in contact.”

The vehicle - registration “RX08 CWM” - has many distinctive features including a pop up roof hinged at the front, twin side loading doors and a tailgate - rare for a Transit - and privacy glass on all windows behind the cab.

There is also a thick rubber strip acting as a deflector above the windscreen, a ‘WESTFALIA’ sticker on the right hand side above the windscreen and a colour coded grille.

On the rear there is a aluminium Fiamma bike rack, a ‘Nugget’ sticker on the tailgate, a Witter towbar and electrics and another ‘WESTFALIA” sticker on the pop up roof above the gutter line.

Anyone with information is asked to call Calderdale Police on 101.
