A MIDWIFE’S bag, along with oxygen and Entonox gas cylinders, was stolen from her car by a ‘brazen’ thief in Chichester on this morning (January 7).

The theft occurred from the Vauxhall Zafira car in King’s Avenue a few minutes before 9am.

A man, described as white, tall and skinny was seen running from the car and it is thought that he may well have dumped the cylinders nearby.

The bag did not contain any drugs, but did have a number of items of medical equipment including a blood pressure monitor and syringes. A Tom-Tom sat nav was also taken.

Anyone who saw the theft taking place or who has any other information is asked to call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 257 of 07/01.
