Two vans used by TV's DIY SOS volunteers have been broken into while builders were working on their latest life-changing project.

The show's presenter Nick Knowles revealed that two volunteers had vans broken into and tools stolen by "a few nasties".

The BBC TV show team had been in West Bromwich, where they have been extending the home of a cancer-hit family.

Nick Knowles' tweet promoted a local car dealership to get in touch, as well as another kind-hearted citizen who offered £30 to cover the repairs.

When one critic on Twitter suggested the break-ins were typical of the area, Mr Knowles defended West Bromwich.

He replied: "I don't believe it is - we've had amazing people here and I'm not going to change my mind because of a few nasties."
