POLICE are hunting thieves who have stolen a mobility scooter from a volunteer who depends on the vehicle for his charity work.
The mobility scooter was taken from outside the British Heart Foundation store, in Newport, Isle of Wight where the victim volunteers, last Thursday afternoon.
It is a unique four-wheeled scooter, with electric blue panelling, a black seat cover and a modified ignition which uses a flick switch.
Investigating officer PC Matt Wilford said: “Both the victim and his wife use the scooter, and have had to obtain alternative help just to get around as a result of this theft.
“We're appealing for any witnesses who may have seen someone taking the scooter or using it in the area.”
Anyone with information about the theft, which happened in Taylor Road, between 11am and 12noon, should contact Newport police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
