A food bank targeted by thieves who stole food, cash and equipment less than two weeks ago has faced another blow - after its van was stolen.

Oldham Foodbank was set up seven years ago to help some of the most vulnerable people in the Oldham area.

Its blue Ford Transit van was taken from outside the Royal Oldham Hospital on Wednesday.

The charity says the vehicle forms a "vital" part of their work.
