Maria's joy after her stolen car recovered

SINGER and actress Maria Doyle Kennedy has been reunited with her car -- less than a week after it was stolen by thieves who used a fishing rod to rob her keys.

Last week, the Downtown Abbey star was frantic when thieves nabbed the keys to her gold Mercedes by attaching a magnet to a fishing rod and putting the rod through her letterbox.

Maria's husband Kieran, who is currently touring with her in London said they're both hugely relieved because the master mixes to Maria's latest album were found safe in the car.

"Maria and I are touring in London and we got a call from the police to say that the car was found."
