Giles Coren turned detective to track down his £65,000 eco-Jaguar that was stolen by 'gangster' joy riders.

The TV presenter, 52, tweeted that he 'got his electric kitty cat back' after the police texted him its location in Highgate, north London, but didn't have the 'manpower to investigate'.

In the thread, he posted pictures of his route to the Jaguar I-Pace, for which the tracker was disabled within three minutes of it being stolen on Friday night. 

While setting out to locate his car, Mr Coren posted: 'I suppose I’m rather hoping the crims [criminals] themselves are not still in the vehicle…?' 

The battery-electric crossover SUV had been left on the street for two days with 'no suspects present' and all officers on duty in the area at the time were 'assigned to ongoing incidents so unable to attend', said the Met Police.
