Police on Wednesday (January 21) released video of the moment that raiders stole race trophies from the Red Bull Racing team headquarters.

The theft took place in the early hours of December 6, 2014 when the thieves used a car to smash down glass doors at the Formula One team headquarters in Milton Keynes.

The trophies taken were from Formula One races, and some were replicas.

The team's principal, Christian Horner, said, despite their appearance, the trophies were not valuable.

"It was a pointless crime," Horner said. "The value of these trophies is minimal in terms of the raw material. But the emotional value is huge and it would be great to see those trophies back in their rightful home in Milton Keynes."

Thames Valley police will be presenting the video evidence on a BBC television programme on Wednesday in the hope that viewers can identify the thieves, and find the whereabouts of about 40 trophies still missing.

Within two weeks of the raid, 20 trophies were found dumped in a lake in the neighbouring county of Berkshire.
