An adult disability centre in Fenland has expressed their “anger and disbelief” after a thief stole a member of staff’s scooter during their lunch break.
The victim has been left without their vital transport to get to and from work after their red and silver scooter was stolen from The Helping Hands Group in Wisbech.
“My partner works full time so won’t be able to keep bringing me into work anymore, I don’t really know what to do,” she said.
