Terminally Ill Man's Car Stolen In Coggeshall
Burglars have stolen the car of a terminally ill man in Coggeshall.
Burglars jemmied open the front door of a house in The Greenways, sometime between Thursday midnight and 7.30am on Friday morning (April 22nd).
They stole a handbag containing a purse, bank cards and a white iPhone 4, and a white Ford Cougar Titanium. They also stole a walking frame, which was inside the car.
Pc David Smith, of Braintree CID, said:
"Any burglary is distressing, but this was a particularly callous crime in that the victim, who is aged in his 70s, has cancer and his wife is now unable to drive him to hospital appointments.
I am appealing for witnesses who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the burglary, or saw the car being driven away or since the incident.”
The first of the 66 Crossrail trains is in operation from today running on the TFL route between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.
A crackdown, aimed at tackling online child abuse in Essex has seen more than 40 people arrested in the last six months.
