A MOTORIST did not know which way to turn when he returned to his car to find thieves had stolen the satellite navigation system.

The equipment, worth about £3,500, was taken from his BMW, which was parked in the Northumberland Street car park, Darlington, behind the Blockbuster video store. After the raid, between noon and 4.50pm on Wednesday, the thieves were able to plot a quick escape route.
