DESPICABLE thieves have stolen two spare wheels from a pair of hospice delivery vehicles – potentially leaving a huge dent in the charity’s coffers for replacements.

The criminals sneaked onto the site of Hartlepool & District Hospice, in Wells Avenue, off Holdforth Road, in Hartlepool, some time over the Christmas period and stole the wheels from underneath two of the organisation’s Mercedes Sprinter vans.

One of the hospice delivery drivers – who uses the vans to collect and drop off goods for the hospice shops across town – noticed a bracket hanging off one of the vans where a spare wheel would normally sit.
