A vandal has stolen the wheel and tyre from a community minibus in St Ives.

The minibus, owned by Age UK Cornwall, was parked in St Ives overnight on Saturday (28 December).

In the morning a volunteer driver found the vehicle had been propped up on a stone and the wheel and tyre had been removed and taken.

The vehicle is exclusively used to help people who need accessible transport and will be out of action until at least Wednesday this week, giving the company no choice but to cancel planned day trips.
