Woman has car stolen at gunpoint
A woman has had her car stolen at gunpoint while taking two prospective buyers out on a test drive in Cheshire.

The victim was showing her red Vauxhall Astra coupe to two would-be male buyers, both aged about 19.

She was a passenger on the test drive on Wednesday afternoon. The driver stopped the car and the woman was threatened with a gun and ordered out.

The incident happened on Golborne Road in the Winwick area of Warrington. Police are appealing for witnesses.

Police are also trying to trace a third man who brought the two thieves to the buyers' house.

He was also aged about 19 or 20 and drove a purple X registration Vauxhall Tigra.
