Double snooker World Championship finalist Matthew Stevens has had his cue stolen from his car.

Stevens, 39, has had the cue since becoming a professional in 1994 and it has helped him win the 2000 Masters and 2003 UK titles.

It was taken from his white BMW between 20:00 BST on Sunday and 08:30 on Monday while it was parked on Gilbert Crescent in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire.

Stevens has promised a reward for the safe return of his cue.

It was in a black case with the word MAXIMUS written in gold on the case.

Dyfed-Powys Police is investigating the theft.

Stevens, from Carmarthen, has twice been a World Championship finalist, losing to Mark Williams in 2000 and Shaun Murphy in 2005.
