Adams and other family members were at home at the time but were not aware of the break-in. Burglars took two cars, training kit and valuable personal possessions.

The Leeds boxer's grey Hyundai Veloster Turbo was found at around 8.20am today parked in Sandringham Way in Alwoodley after a member of the public called the police to report it having been left there.

Unfortunately the boxing equipment and other items that were in the boot when it was stolen were no longer in the vehicle.

We would like to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle being left in Sandringham Way any time after it was stolen on Wednesday morning.

The silver Ford Focus TDCi, registration YH09DLU, that was also stolen in the burglary remains outstanding at this time. We would still like to hear from anyone who has seen that vehicle or who knows its current whereabouts."

Police release Efit in attempted robbery investigation

Police have released an Efit of a man they want to speak to in connection with the attempted robbery of a teenager in Wakefield.

A 15-year-old boy was approached by three men on Avondale Street in Wakefield on Monday. The men demanded his mobile phone and cash and attempted to push the teenager to the floor. He was able to resist and then run away from the trio.

We are appealing for witnesses to this offence and would like to speak to anyone who recognises the Efit of the man pictured. The victim was fortunately not injured but clearly this would have been a frightening experience for him and we are anxious to locate the men responsible.
