A ‘lifeline’ car belonging to a disabled woman was stolen from Leigh Park and set alight.
Police are hunting those responsible for taking the silver Ford KA from Littleton Grove, Leigh Park.
It happened between 6pm and 10.30pm on Wednesday, February 25. The car was found, destroyed, in Warren Park.
In a statement police said the 61-year-old, who has difficulty walking, ‘has been left without a vital lifeline’.
She told police she has been left virtually trapped in her home as it was her main way of getting around.
Officers are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the vehicle being driven around the Leigh Park area on the evening it was stolen.
Anyone who saw the car that evening, it being set alight or has any other information about the crime, is asked to call PC Stuart Grover at Waterlooville Police Station on 101 or call charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
