Extra CCTV installed in bid to protect NHS staff cars
Worcester City Council's Community Safety team has joined forces with West Mercia Police to install extra CCTV cameras at the Royal Worcestershire Hospital, following recent thefts from nurses' cars while they worked.
Thieves stole catalytic converters, which contain precious metals, from the cars when they were parked in the hospital's car park on Sunday 5 April.
"It beggars belief that anyone could target NHS staff in such a despicable way at a time when they are working so hard to protect local people's health," said Ann Nicholls, who works for the City Council's Community Safety team.
"We have now installed additional CCTV cameras at the hospital car park – we will do whatever is necessary to track down culprits who target NHS staff in such a callous way."
The Police are continuing their investigation in to last weekend's incident.Anyone with information is urged to call 101, quoting incident number 204s 5th April 2020 – or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
