A milkman doing his rounds had his float stolen by a thief who dragged him out of the vehicle and drove away.

He was dropping off milk bottles at a home in Oldham, Greater Manchester, when the incident unfolded at 07:06 GMT on Monday.

As the milkman returned, a male offender opened the driver's door and dragged him out.

He then drove off along Rochdale Rd, High Crompton, towards Rochdale.

The offender is described as white, 45-50 years old, of stocky build and with grey receding hair.
