Vile thieves pillage NHS worker’s car for parts at Bassetlaw Hospital
This shocking photo shows what was left of an NHS worker’s car after thieves pillaged it for parts at a Bassetlaw Hospital car park.
The exhausted worker - who had just finished ‘an extremely humid 12-hour shift’ - returned to his car in the hospital’s Kilton Hill carpark to find its front bumper, radiator grill and headlights gone.
Photos from the car park show a gaping hole where the smart VW Golf’s badge and light assembly would once have been when its owner returned to drive home on Wednesday at 8pm.
CCTV footage of the incident shows three hooded individuals gutted the car’s components in around 40 seconds.
Bassetlaw Hospital - appealing for information to catch those responsible - said: ‘NHS heroes should not have to worry about leaving their vehicles on premises’.
A spokesman said: “At any point in the day colleagues within our Trust are caring for the most vulnerable - welcoming new lives into the world and offering comfort to those at the end of it.
“Episodes such as this are entirely demoralising and this is not how we should treat our health professionals who commit their working lives to the care of others.”
News of the vile theft has sparked disgust on Facebook.
Sarah Pinder wrote: “I'm so sorry for the member of staff this happened to. It's the lowest of the low targeting anywhere let alone a hospital. I hope this gets sorted and the culprits are caught!”
