Football fans have been urged to look out for "suspicious" new England 2010 away shirts after a lorry carrying the new football shirts - believed to be worth £2 million - was hijacked in Flintshire.
The BBC reports that an armed, hooded gang struck at about 0800 GMT on Wednesday on the Deeside Industrial Estate.
The driver, 37, was released, unhurt, an hour later 40 miles (64km) away in Wigan, Lancashire.
The truck, which was later found burnt out in Merseyside, was delivering 50,000 England away kits to an Umbro clothing factory when it held up.
"Deeside Industrial Estate is a busy area, especially at this time of the morning, and we are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the vehicle or noticed anything suspicious."
