A STOLEN caravan was discovered in Farnworth last night.

The vehicle — a white Swift Challenger — had been reported stolen from a property in Cheshire on Wednesday evening.

Patrols from Greater Manchester Police's road policing unit found the caravan off Hall Lane in Moses Gate. The vehicle has been recovered.

The traffic patrols tweeted about the recovery last night: "Stolen caravan from Cheshire recovered this evening by RPU West patrols off Hall Lane, Moses Gate.

"This gave ME18 the opportunity to use his tow bar for the first time with a caravan. #ME18."
