Valuable watches stolen from an iconic car factory in Malvern have been returned to the company.

Watches worth £6,000 were stolen from the Morgan Motor Company’s factory in Pickersleigh Road.

But a police investigation led to the recovery of the timepieces and two men were arrested and charged following the theft.

The watches have now been returned to Morgan staff by officers.

A spokesperson for the company told us last week: “We would like to place on record our gratitude to the police for their quick and thorough action when dealing with this crime, they’ve done everything they can do to help and we are most grateful.”

Officers from the Malvern safer neighbourhood team said they provided advice to the factory to prevent the situation from happening again in the future.

The Morgan Motor Company is famous for manufacturing British vehicles in Malvern for more than 110 years.

The company was established in 1909 by H.F.S Morgan with the design of the Morgan Three Wheeler.
