Ah, but the caption (if you hover over the photo) says "Picture of a
Land Rover similar to the one stolen" so I reckon the Researcher was
just told to go through the archives for a green Land Rover ......
what do you mean, there's more than one type?
The Warks police report says "A silver car was reported to have been
seen in the area of Featherbed Lane, Withybrook at around the time
that the Landrover was stolen and police are appealing for members of
the public who were in the Withybrook area to recall if they saw a
silver coloured car, or if they saw the green Landrover Defender being
driven away. The Landrover, which is green with a white roof is
approximately two years old."
So, likely to be a Defender.
