Air ambulance shop hit by thieves for the fourth time

The air ambulance shop in Wigston has been targeted by thieves – for the fourth time in 18 months.

The shop was broken into some time between closing on Sunday 6th November and reopening the next morning.

Dismayed staff found that the back door had been broken and the safe ripped out of the wall.

The break-in has cost the charity over £1,300 – nearly the cost of a lifesaving mission – including having to pay out to replace the safe and to fix the broken door.

Area manager Rachael Abi-Rached said: “It is a terrible shame for us to be targeted four times, but we’re confident that we will be able to bounce back. We are proud to have strong support for our lifesaving charity in our community in Wigston.”

Anyone who has any information to contact the police on 101.
