A LONGFIELD man had his £13,000 car stolen after leaving his key in the ignition while he popped into the newsagents.

The man's silver W-reg Kia Clarus was stolen when he ran into the newsagents in Ash Road, Hartley, at about 1.30pm.

From inside the shop, he saw someone jump into the car and drive off towards New Ash Green.

He then called police.

Anyone with information about the theft last month, or where the car is now, should call police on 01322 283111 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
