It happened early in the morning at Sue Ryder's Thorpe Hall Hospice.

The doors were unlocked because a patient had passed away and their family were due to visit.

The charity says the hospice costs more than 3 million pounds a year to run and the theft has been distressing for staff and residents.

Police are investigating.
