A rare Ferrari 456 GT worth 45,000, which was stolen from the garage of a house in Surrey, has been found after it hit a road sign.

The distinctive pale blue car was taken on 10 May from a property in South Godstone and was involved in the accident in Knaphill the next night.

Two men fled the scene, at the junction of Tringham Way and Redding Way, after climbing out of the windows of the car.

Anyone with information about the theft or the crash is asked to call police.

The two suspects made off in the direction of the Sainsbury's supermarket, and were described as white men in their early 20s, both wearing jeans.

Tracker dogs

One of the offenders was 6ft tall, of medium build with light brown hair, and was wearing light blue jeans with a blue and white top.

Neighbourhood specialist officer Tina Spencer said that after the accident, officers, tracker dogs and the police helicopter were involved in trying to locate those involved.

"Maybe someone remembers seeing the car being driven before the time of the crash or noticed it in the vicinity because of its rarity," she said.

The Ferrari is believed to be one of only two of its kind in the country due to its colour, which is known as Azzurro Hyperion Blue.
