Sorry to hear the news.
Could I ask where roughly in the North West you are?
Also, did you have any form of security features on the vehicle... alarm, immob, tracker, steering lock etc etc. Contact details of the local police dealing with the crime would be handy too.
Edit : Sorry, noticed from the pic that you were using a steering wheel lock... anything else ?, also, notice from your profile, its the Upton, Wirral area
