Child's wheelchair stolen in Merseyside

Police in Merseyside are appealing for information after a child's wheelchair was stolen in a burglary.

Officers were called to the address in Thornfield Hey, Spital after reports a black Ford Galaxy Zetec, registration plate FE12 XXJ, was stolen from the drive way of the property.

A specially adapted wheelchair was in the boot of the car. Money and two computers were also stolen from the property.

"The wheelchair belongs to the 4-year-old daughter of the owners and its vitally important to her for daily life.

It has been specially adapted to this little girl and I doubt it would be of use to anyone else.

I believe it's possible that the chair has either been dumped or remains in the back of the car, so I urge anyone who has any information about either car or wheelchair to come forward."

– Detective Inspector Justin Danher

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Detectives on 0151 777 2264 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
