The incident took place last night (Wednesday 17) and the men were said to have threatened the owner of the car.

The men were using a silver Vauxhaull Astra van and police are looking to speak to anyone who sees the same vehicle in 'suspicious circumstances'.

A tweet from Chichester Police said: "Did you seen a silver Astra van in the #Bosham area on Wednesday evening 17/07/19. Males tried to steal doors to a Land Rover Defender and threatened the owner.

"If you see a similar vehicle in Bosham in suspicious circumstances please take the index and let us know #ATeamChi."
