Trophies stolen from Red Bull's Milton Keynes factory earlier this month have been recovered from a lake in Berkshire, Thames Valley Police has confirmed.

On December 6, a group of six men drove a silver 4x4 through the front entrance and stole over 60 trophies on display in the main entrance hall. Red Bull staff were unharmed and alerted the police to the break-in.

Police appealed for information following the theft and have now confirmed 20 of the trophies have been found in a lake near Sandhurst, though some have sustained damage.

A statement released on Thursday said: "Some of the trophies were recovered from Horseshoe Lake near Sandhurst yesterday. We estimate about twenty trophies have been recovered, but we are liaising with Red Bull to establish the exact number, as some of the trophies are damaged."

The cars used in the theft are still of interest to the police, both the silver 4x4 used to smash through the front gate and a dark blue or black Mercedes. Both are believed to have foreign number plates.

Thames Valley Police have asked that anyone with any information about the burglary, or who finds a trophy near the area to contact them on 101.
