A BARNSLEY musician is appealing for information after thieves stole her distinctive pink guitar.

Kayla Kavanagh's van was broken into on Sunday evening (November 18) while parked outside her house in Staincross.

Thieves stole her customised pink guitar and sound equipment worth £600.

She said: "My van is insured for equipment stored overnight as this is quite common for musicians as long as it is parked safely out of sight - mine was under a car port at the back of the house and was locked with my partners car parked right up behind it so it was out of sight.

"The van is also blacked out so you can't see the equipment and was ready to go for an early morning start when I realised - not a great start to the day."

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting crime number B-108741-2012.
