A car was stolen from a street in Ayr at the weekend, and could be linked to an alleged break-in in the town.

A car was taken from the town's Content Street on Sunday evening.

The owner of the car is believed to be a delivery driver for the popular What The Scoop desert shop.

The red Vauxhall Astra was stolen at around just before 10pm, with police being alerted shortly after.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace the car.
