POLICE officers had their work cut out when they were asked to find a missing car.

The Range Rover was reportedly abandoned somewhere in Stanmer Park.

But officers patrolling the area had a tough job trying to follow up the report in the 486 acre park and nature reserve. A picture from the scene looked pretty bleak.

But on Twitter Brighton Police posted: “Currently in Stanmer Park looking for a reported abandoned Range Rover.

“Can anyone point us in the right direction?”
