THE husband of Apprentice star Karren Brady has offered a reward for information after thieves stole his £30,000 car from outside the couple’s Knowle home.

Ex-footballer Paul Peschisolido, who manages League Two team Burton Albion, said the Mercedes E-Class contained a laptop holding information about his work at the club.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the theft on Monday morning at about 7.30am.

The Merc, which has the personalised number plate P33 SCH, was left running to defrost outside the house Mr Peschisolido shares with Ms Brady and their two children.

The thieves got away by smashing through gates and the car is believed to be damaged at the front.

In a statement issued by Burton Albion, Peschisolido said: “I’m absolutely devastated.

“As well as losing my car, I’ve lost my laptop on which I keep everything relating to the football club.

“It’s very, very valuable to me and I’m offering a major reward in the hope I can get it back.

“I saw these guys leap in the car and drive off just as I came out of the house.

“I thought I might be able to catch them because the fob you need to open the gates wasn’t in the car but they smashed through them.”

The former Canadian international played for English sides including Birmingham City, Stoke, West Bromwich Albion, Fulham, Sheffield United and Derby.
