Heartless thieves have stolen a mobility tricycle from opposite a police station, leaving its disabled owner without transport.

Caroline Barr, who lives in sight of the station in St Leonard’s Street, saved up for months to buy the specialised trike worth hundreds of pounds.

But when she woke up on Sunday morning, she found the vehicle had been stolen during the night from the car park at the back of her home.

The charity worker and volunteer said she suspected it had been taken by drunken revellers. She said: “But it’s difficult to drive when you’re sober, let alone drunk, so I hope it’s not ended up in a hedge.”
