A businessman's wife was tied up and abducted by a masked man who flagged down her Volvo as she was driving home from the village of Thornton, near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, yesterday. The Asian woman stopped when she believed another motorist was flagging her down because something was wrong with her car.

She pulled into a lay-by and moments later was confronted by a man wearing a black cotton mask with eye slits cut in it. He pulled her from the car and used plastic ties to handcuff her arms behind her back, before bundling her into his car. Police said the 30-year-old woman was driven about one- and-a-half miles before the car turned into a field. There, as the man was about to attack her, she managed to escape and ran down the road screaming for help.
