A collection of model cars worth £3,000 has been stolen in a burglary in Taunton. The 1:43 scale die-cast models were stolen during a break-in at a property in South Road, Taunton, between August 23 and 26. The collection includes many well-known names, like Corgi and Dinky and foreign makes. It included model cars and sports cars dating back to the 1960s and 1970s. Many were unboxed but in mint condition. The cars were taken along with a briefcase, TV, camera, jewellery and other items. Second-hand shops and model collectors are being asked to be vigilant.
