The actor, who played Ewok Wicket in Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi, tweeted on Sunday (11 October): "If you stole our caravan ... please can have we the sentimental items that are of no use to you? Special holiday memories."

He received information from other Twitter users, including one who said she had seen the stolen vehicle "towed by a dark pick up truck, driving too fast". Cambridgeshire Police is investigating the theft of the Swift Archway Cranford 545 caravan.
