An intensive care nurse has been left unable to work after thieves broke into her house and stole her car and handbag.
Sarah Banks was asleep after a gruelling 14-hour shift when her Volkswagen Golf was stolen from her home in Bromsgrove.
Her handbag contained her glasses - so she now has to wait for a new set before she can work again - preventing her from saving more lives.
Sarah thinks they entered the property by climbing over the fence in her garden.
They then smashed open a lock around the back of the house - while she was sleeping upstairs.
Sarah's car is worth over £30,000, and was stolen along with her handbag.
Inside that were her glasses which she needs to work. So now she's physically prevented from saving lives. The only thing they left on the table was her NHS pass.
Sarah hasn't seen her children for three weeks now because of her work commitments.
But despite what's happened she's still determined to put others before herself, and get back to working on the frontline, where, no doubt she'll be needed.
West Mercia Police say they're investigating the theft.
