POLICE recovered a host of stolen camper vans after a chance sighting.

Police discovered three camper vans within streets of each other on Monday night after one was sighted around Walkden.

After locating one camper van, officers then found two more in the area — one stolen back in September and another taken just two days ago.

The vans were recovered in the St Mary's Road and Walkden Court areas.

Greater Manchester Police tweeted: "Officers became aware that a stolen camper van had been sighted towards Walkden.
