This news is from London. A Porsche is parked in the street. It is a convertible. It has a canvas roof.

A man comes to the car. He wants to steal it. He cuts open the roof with a knife. He gets inside. He wants to drive away, but he can’t. He gets out of the car and leaves.

Later that same day, the man goes to a shop. He steals some clothing.

Now, the police are looking for this man. They are asking people for help.

Difficult words: convertible (a car with a roof which you can have above your head or you can put it away), canvas (strong cloth – fabric, textile), roof (the top part of the car which protects you from rain).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
