The owners of a lime green Lamborghini stolen from a village near Wetherby are offering a reward for its safe return.

The vividly coloured Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, registration number RW24, was stolen on 31 August, and has since been spotted in the Halifax area.

North Yorkshire Police said there was a £10,000 reward for the safe recovery of the vehicle, or the arrest and conviction of the thieves.

The force has described the £300,000 car as "extremely rare".

A spokesman said: "The vehicle was wrapped in a distinctive lime green film with a black racing stripe on the bonnet and green racing stripe on the roof.

"It has a removable roof, black wheels, wheel spacers, beige seats and the word Lamborghini in black on the front doors."
