Police in Wokingham succeeded in tracking down a stolen wedding car, saving the day for a local couple who are planning to use the vintage vehicle to transport them on their big day next year.

Groom-to-be, Sean Allem, bought the classic Ford Mustang for £500 last year and has been working on restoring the vehicle in time for his wedding to Stacey Tagg next spring. The Ford Mustang has a special place in Sean’s heart as his father owned several of the classic vehicles as he was growing up, and it’s been his aim to own his own ever since.

However the couple’s dreams for driving to their wedding in their very own Mustang wedding car were seemingly dashed when they discovered the car had been stolen from council owned garages. The locks had been broken, and a low loader had presumably been used to remove the wedding car as it didn’t have an engine at the time.

The police were informed about the theft, and set about searching the area for the stolen wedding car. They struck gold when they visited a local scrap yard and found the Ford Mustang waiting to be turned into scrap metal. Luckily the owners of the yard had kept the vehicle to one side, realising it was a rare car.

Sean and Stacey will be reunited with their wedding car pending police enquiries. Mechanic Sean is anxious to get stick into fully restoring his much loved car in time for the couple’s big day next year.

The police are still searching for the two male strangers who took the Ford Mustang to the scrap yard, anyone with information is urged to get in touch.
