A CARE worker is desperate for information after his car and valuable books were stolen from outside his home on Monday evening.
Former Neale-Wade Community College teacher Mike Lynne found his dark grey Volkswagen TD Estate had been taken from his front driveway at Fen Road, Parson Drove, between 6-6.30pm.
The 70-year-old, who has two metal hips after injuries caused from his career as a professional footballer with Preston North End, said: "I'd been out in my back garden for about 20 minutes. I walked around to the front of my house and saw the car was gone. The front door of my house and the key was left on the side so I guess whoever did this saw there was nobody in the house and took their opportunity."
Mr Lynne now works as a part-time care worker, coaching sport and teaching life and social skills 11 to 16-year-olds and his car contained several books that he uses for this.
- 1 Man, 28, dies after truck and lorries crash on A47
- 2 £150,000 splashpad to open in Wisbech
- 3 Driver cleared by reason of insanity over death of Louis Thorold
- 4 Painter who captured town before 1978 floods finishes 44 years on
- 5 Voi trial ‘confuses people’ about illegal e-scooters
- 6 Arson causes fire to rip through derelict building
- 7 Salesman Stephen who 'has a smile every day' marks 45 years at firm
- 8 Drought officially declared in East Anglian region
- 9 Man and teenager jailed after carrying out ‘horrific’ homophobic attack
- 10 Chip shop’s new platter dish ‘The Great Gordon’ tribute to late founder
He said: "These books are really expensive and not easy to get hold of. The car also contained DVLA papers and several important personal documents that I'm desperate to recover."
