A disabled woman whose van and wheelchair were stolen from the Wisbech area has prompted a police appeal for information.

Thieves truck between 1.15am and 10am on Friday (September 2) when they stole the silver Mercedes Sprinter van which contained an £8,500 specially adapted wheelchair from Elm Road.

Victim Rachel Mitton, 39, from Sawston, suffers from severe fibromyalgia and relies on both the van and the electronic vehicle to get about.

The distinctive chair is signed by various music artists and features wings and a skull and cross bone.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
