A man exacted hilarious revenge on an alleged thief who tried to steal his van by hacking into his Facebook profile and shaming him with the phone the hapless would-be criminal left inside the vehicle.

The man's partner was woken to the sound of the yob forcing the door of the silver Vauxhall Vivaro in the early hours of Monday morning outside their home in Newton Heath, Manchester.

He claims the bungling burglar dropped his phone while fleeing from the scene on foot.

Instead of phoning the police, the 40-year-old tradesman, who has asked to remain anonymous, logged into the would-be thief's Facebook profile on the Samsung Galaxy A3 phone and posted a series of hilarious statuses and memes naming and shaming him.

The father-of-four is now auctioning the thief's Facebook account as a prize at random to people who donate to a fundraiser for Manchester Children's Hospital, which he hopes will raise £1,000.
