A gang of prolific car thieves has been caught red-handed after posting photos on Facebook that showed individuals posing on the bonnets of valuable stolen vehicles and flashing wads of cash.

The gang stole nine cars in total – including BMWs, Range Rovers, Porsches and a £80,000 Mercedes C63 AMG – as well as phones, laptops and jewellery in 15 separate burglaries in some of London's wealthiest areas.
