Search for two men after Gatwick alert

An investigation is underway to trace two men who entered a Gatwick Airport car park in an untaxed, uninsured, unregistered van and disappeared, sparking a major alert.

The occupants of the blue Renault van were seen to push up a barrier to gain access and then park the vehicle on the ground floor of the short stay North Terminal car park.

A check with the company whose name was on the van revealed that they had disposed of it six months ago - further checks showed that it was now unregistered, untaxed and uninsured.
