Police are investigating an incident in which a delivery van containing more than 600 copies of a weekly newspaper was hijacked from outside a shop.
A driver delivering copies of the Salisbury Journal was pushed to the floor by a man, who then stole his white Ford Transit van.
The Journal reports that the incident took place last Thursday at around 1.20am in North Street, Wilton when police were called to a report that a van had been stolen from outside the One Stop shop.
The 37-year-old van driver from Southampton, who worked for distribution company Smiths News, was not injured in the incident.
Other titles were also inside the stolen van, including women’s magazines.
No extra copies of the Journal were printed as a result of the theft and the van has since been found by police.
The suspect was wearing a grey hoodie and spoke with an English accent and police are appealing for information.
The paid-for Salisbury Journal, which is published by Newsquest, had a circulation of 16,183 for period July to December last year.
