The paramedics could not believe their eyes when they returned from the home in St Luke’s Green, Beeston, to find the 999 vehicle wrecked.

‘The vehicle had to be made unavailable to respond to life-threatening emergencies whilst the repairs were carried out.

‘Our dedicated staff work extremely hard to deliver the best service possible and for them to have their personal belongings stolen is appalling.’

West Yorkshire Police has appealed for witnesses of the break-in, thought to have happened between 1am and 1.30am on January 28.
