Harry Potter’s “flying” car is stolen

LONDON (Reuters) - The "flying" Ford Anglia used in the
Harry Potter films has been stolen from a film studio lot,
police said on Friday.

"For those who have not seen the Harry Potter films, this
is the car that flies in the movies and is very well known," a
police spokesman said.

The blue Anglia went missing from South West Film Studios
at St Agnes in the southwestern English county of Cornwall.

"The film prop was being stored under a tarpaulin. It was
not in good condition and could not have been driven away under
its own steam," the police spokesman said.
