This is all that was left of a £50,000 luxury Porsche found crushed and stripped less than 24 hours after it was reported stolen.

The Porsche Cayenne V6 was reported stolen from the London/Essex border on Sunday and was found scrapped in Newmarket, Suffolk, the following day.

Cambridgeshire Police received tracker activation at a scrap yard and found the remains of the vehicle.

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police road trafficking unit tweeted a photo of the Porsche shortly after it was found.
