A manhunt is underway after £5million of Apple products were stolen from a lorry during a robbery on the motorway.

The raid took place on the southbound slip road at Junction 18 of the M1, Northamptonshire, between 7.45pm and 8pm on November 10.

Both the driver and a security guard were tied up before the robbers drove the vehicle to an industrial estate in the village of Crick.

The thieves then transferred the trailer onto an awaiting truck and made their escape, leaving their victims behind.

The truck was later found across the county border in Lutterworth, Warwickshire, where it is believed the robbers transferred the 48 pallets of Apple products into a third vehicle.

Northamptonshire Police are now trying to track down the offenders and would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a number of vehicles on slip road at junction 18 which may have looked out of place.

The force would also like to speak to people with dash-cam footage of the area or anyone who has been offered any Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances, or who knows of anyone who is selling them at low prices.
