Police investigating the theft of electrical equipment from the minibus of the US pop group The Drifters are trying to trace a black car.

The band stopped for a meal at Wilford Farm Inn, in Clifton Lane, Nottingham, at 20:00 BST on 17 September.

Laptops and ipads containing family pictures were also taken.

Police believe the stolen items were loaded into a black, five-door, Vauxhall Corsa, before the suspect drove away from the scene.

The man is described as white, 5ft 9ins (1.7m) tall and of medium build.

Lead singer Michael Williams said that they were devastated by the theft but insisted their tour would continue.

The group, which has had 65 members since forming in 1953, had been in the city on a publicity shoot.

Nottinghamshire Police has appealed for information.
