A singer is hoping to recover her beloved MGB Roadster through social media, after it was stolen just two days after she parked it up in Hackney.
Amy Syed’s car left her 1973 red convertible in Triangle Road, London Fields, last Wednesday – but it was taken at some point on Friday night while she was away performing in a gig.
Amy, who had dreamed of having a Roadster ever since her mum had one when she was little, is “absolutely gutted” – but hopes that it will turn up and has taken to Facebook and Twitter to spread the word.
“My initial thoughts are it’s a joy ride,” she said.
“It’s pretty priceless to me, but I don’t know how much it’s worth.

“It’s an old car, and the photos do her a huge justice – there’s lots of rust and some dodgy paintwork, and the interior needs a huge amount of work.”
She continued: “It’s been in Queen’s Park for the last year and a half, I only moved it here on Wednesday, after it had work done.

“I find it odd someone would steal it for money as it’s a difficult thing to sell off - it’s not inconspicuous.”
The car’s registration plate is XVM 376L.
